Its feature “Entrepreneurial Upstarts” focused on alumni who stand poised to disrupt with innovation-driven businesses, includes Jeff’s startup path and some of his words of wisdom:

“What’s served me the most over the years was getting as much experience as possible in different business areas beyond my technical background in engineering,” Martin says. “I think entrepreneurs often have to go out of their comfort zones to succeed.”
