In this episode of the DevReady Podcast, hosts Andrew Romeo and Anthony Sapountzis talk to Mark McCormack, Co-Founder, Design Posse. Mark has had a pretty long and eventful career, from being in a cover band to designing digital strategies for various advertising agencies to supporting start-ups and innovation in entertainment-related technology—he has surely done it all.
Call him a musician, call him a technologist, or call him a Young Achiever as he was, after all, the runner up in the Young Achievers Competition—that being his first foray into the world and marketing and interviews. That, as they say, was only the start of his rather illustrious career.
Having worked in different industries, Mark strongly believes that two things are key to success in any industry, no matter how disruptive a product or service is:
1. Ability to build networks
2. Ability to solve a problem
· Moving into the Software Industry from Music
· Struggles of being the Pioneer
· How to educate your customers
· Taking Risks
· Building effective Networks
