When VCs Said It Couldn’t Be Done

Mike Baker, DataXu President and CEO said: “I was told by a VC the first time I proposed to be a CEO ‘I don’t believe that you’ll be an effective CEO because you haven’t done it before!’ After I made him and his firm a lot of money on a very successful exit, he actually set up an appointment to come to my office and apologize for what he said 4 years after saying it.”
