Interview with Marius Ghenea – “The biggest mistake I have seen is not recognizing the importance of an excellent team.”

Doug Richard delivered one of the most appreciated keynote speeches and Marius Ghenea held the workshop with the most attendance rate on Early Stage Investments – we had to bring in extra chairs to the room! 🙂
