Ep. 67 – Evolution of Entrepreneurship: Perceptions, Realities and Finding the All-Important Truths – with Bryan Stolle

Being an entrepreneur is one of the most challenging career paths you can take — something that Bryan Stolle, serial entrepreneur and Founding Partner at Wildcat Venture Partners, knows intimately. Entrepreneurial success stories have become so pervasive in our culture that it may seem like the easy way out, but don’t let the hype fool you.

Between the draw of Silicon Valley and the success of shows like Shark Tank, entrepreneurship and startups are undoubtedly more trendy than ever. In some ways, it’s become an obsession.

Some view entrepreneurship as an outcome, while others see it as a necessity, or even as a habit and a practice. Technology has also seemingly made it easier to achieve success. But is that really the case?

To answer that question, we sit down with Bryan Stolle, who has created more than $1 billion in realized liquidity for his investors as a founder of multiple companies. And as founder and CEO of Agile Software, Bryan led the creation of a new category now called product lifecycle management (PLM).

In this episode, Bryan shares his perspective on:

  • The perceptions and realities of entrepreneurship and its evolution

  • The myths and misconceptions that are still are prevalent

  • What an aspiring or current entrepreneur needs to consider to create momentum for success
