He also founded the software company CloudVertical, which suffered as competition in the cloud-computing market intensified and “Amazon won everything,” Byrne said. It’s the only business for which he raised venture capital, and the experience contributed to his skepticism about VC firms. … [Read more...] about Scaleworks co-founder talks venture capital and what he looks for in a CEO
