In this episode of our series of exclusive interviews, we talk to encryption enterprise guru David Gurle about what life is like as a Silicon Valley startup.
Find out why it's not what you know but who you know that matters, and how David ensured Perzo rose above the crop of budding startups in the Valley.
David told us the one reason he doesn't believe in accelerators, and why venture capitalists are the way to go for a burgeoning startup.
He also gave us some candid advice about how to make your startup successful, and how the challenge of building a startup in the UK could actually be an advantage over doing so in the US.
David Gurle is Founder & CEO of Perzo Inc, a secure email and SMS service.
