How 9/11 Made Josh Konowe A Serial Entrepreneur

Episode 4 large

Our distinguished guest today is Josh Konowe, who is currently the Chief Product Officer at Canvas, a mobile app company in Reston, VA. Josh is a serial entrepreneur and has successfully started and sold multiple companies, among other achievements. And Josh decided to quit his job and become an entrepreneur after being in the NYC on Sept 11, 2001 and seeing the World Trade Center crumble before his eyes. You’ll hear the story from himself in this interview. And I feel Josh is an excellent example that some face time with death can teach you how to live.

In the interview, Josh shares his experience of running three technology companies, from idea generation, to fundraising, to acquisition. He also shares his criteria for selecting business ideas, and his advices for new entrepreneurs.

Listening to others is a great quality for an entrepreneur. Take time to explore why you may be wrong.
