so, currently I am working in the industry as a Sales person for a mid-sized Cybersec company.
Creating a new product from the ground up was always a target of mine, so I can use my broad industry knowledge based on the CISOs I talk to, my ability to sell and the network I will build over the next years.
But, to be successful as a founder (or better said, increase the chance of success) and not just be an “entrepreneur” like the shady people you receive in youtube ads, you need a two part skillset imho: you need to be a “builder” (a.k.a. have the technical in depth knowledge) as well as being able to sell and have broad industry knowledge.
I am currently strengthening my skillset in the Sales department, but want to build my technical knowledge up as well, especially since I am coming from a mechanical engineering background with big focus on AI software development.
Therefore, I am looking for somebody who is strong in the technical skillset, with whom I can have an exchange of thoughts. (Preferrably in Germany, Austria, Switzerland)
This way both benefit from the exchange as we become more well rounded in our skillsets.
If somebody is interested send me a pm! :)
