Rackspace On Startups: Guy Kawasaki

What really drives tech entrepreneurs? What makes them tick? What drew the great disruptors to technology? Rackspace On Startups is a video series that explores insights from tech evangelists and founders – from Woz to Graham Weston.

Guy Kawasaki’s first encounter with the Apple II was “life-changing” – and he quickly became an evangelist. From being one of the first to market Apple in the early 80s to becoming one of Silicon Valley’s most renowned authors and speakers, Guy saw the Valley grow from its humble roots. It started with Apple and Intel, and opened the doors to the likes of Google and Facebook.

Here, Guy talks about the Valley’s startup roots and how today’s technologies make it easier to be an entrepreneur.

Dave Sims currently serves as Rackspace's Culture Branding Lead. Previously, he was Video Manager, Lead Producer and Storyteller. His approach to telling Rackspace's story has been to humanize the technology experience by taking complex technical ideas and communicating them in a dynamic and compelling way. Dave attended the London Film School in the mid-90s and produced five feature films and over 60 commercials on three continents before joining Rackspace in 2010.
