Prof. Edward Roberts from MIT has been a huge influence in my entrepreneurial career, so naturally when he was being profiled by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the “gurus” in an article about “Gurus and Grads” I happily agreed to participate. Ed has helped to start something north of 40 companies in his career including Meditech (one of the largest privately held software companies in the world with more than $300mm in annual revenues) and Sohu.com(the “Yahoo” of China). He has been incredibly successful but probably the most amazing thing about him is how much time he spends mentoring young entrepreneurs. He is a truly kind and wonderful person. You can find the article in the October issue of Entrepreneur Magazine. Go Ed!
