There are a few good reasons why working for a mature company first can make you a better startup founder. When I talked with Paulo Gomes (full interview), cofounder of Wizdee, we discussed three key points in the context of B2B companies. And Paulo knows what he’s talking about. He worked in the space for many years in academia before founding Wizdee – which has quickly become one of the four global players in natural language search (see Gartner report), alongside behemoths like Google and Microsoft. Wow!
