The very first episode of Boardwave's podcast series. In episode one, we discuss how the European software industry can build more world-class companies with our Boardwave Patrons, Leo Apotheker, Chairperson & Board Member, Former CEO Hewlett Packard & SAP, and Adam Hale, Board Member & Advisor, who as CEO of Fairsail successfully sold his business to Sage. We also talk to Boardwave Founder, Phill Robinson, and Lindsey Armstrong, Board Member & Advisor to several European software firms including Aforza (UK) and nfinite (France). In her earlier career Lindsey ran the international business of two large US software firms, Salesforce.com and Symantec. We take a look at the issues and look at our strengths and weaknesses compared to the crucible of software, Silicon Valley, as well as the emergence of Asia as a software powerhouse.
