Rackspace On Startups: Sean Kane

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.

Sean Kane is witnessing the London startup scene come into its own. As co-founder of Springboard, Kane is on the front lines of London’s startup ecosystem as a mentor and an entrepreneur. To Kane, location no longer matters – the startup movement is global. Teams are working to change the world together regardless of where they are. Kane also founded F6S, a Facebook-type social site to empower startups, through which Rackspace also engages young companies.

Rackspace, he said, understands entrepreneurs. It’s Rackspace’s startup spirit – the willingness to take risks and possibly get things wrong – that keeps it in sync with how startups operate.

Here, Kane discusses how the startup movement and the growth of the Internet are unlocking the entrepreneurial spirit globally.
