(Community Matters) Steven knew Rob Adams way before I did – from entrepreneurship courses at UT. Rob & I got to know each other when he launched & ran AV Labs. We’d become friends over the years but hadn’t stayed connected the last 6 or so.
Rob’s (professor/dr) now teaching in UT’s MBA program and running their Texas Venture Labs. I caught up with him for EF purposes over lunch a few weeks ago, and Tuesday night Steven and I had dinner with him. He’s doing great work and bringing fantastic experiences to UT graduate students. I like remembering what he said about businesses – their needs always boil down to 3 areas: 1) revenues (either products or services or growth), 2) attracting capital, 3) making sure the right people are in the right jobs
