15 Of The Sharpest Up And Coming CEOs In Silicon Valley

15 Of The Sharpest Up And Coming CEOs In Silicon Valley | Mountains-Vista | Scoop.it

Here's the Tech CEO best of the best list via Business Insider. Tech startups CEOs give a great view of what's next.

 

Here's two from the full list that were quite fetching in ingenuity and business style.  It's also an easy to browse, via click, article. ~  Deb

 

Excerpts:

 

Jamie Wong speaks multiple languages and has spent her life traveling the world. Now she's building a startup that makes it much easier for everyone to do the same.]

 

Vayable basically shortens the process of planning a vacation from 30 hours down to about 5 minutes. It makes it easy to plan "experiences," like touring the Louvre with a French student instead of riding a tour bus around town.

 

Patrick Collison's Stripe has become the go-to provider for accepting payments online. It makes it dead simple to add a way to pay for things on just about any app.

 

That's great for other founders, because payments are typically the most tricky part of building an application, and can take months to finally get off the ground. With Stripe, it's just a few lines of code.

Marissa Mayer breaks her silence on Yahoo's telecommuting policy - Fortune Tech

Marissa Mayer breaks her silence on Yahoo's telecommuting policy - Fortune Tech | Mountains-Vista | Scoop.it

Mayer defended her decision by first acknowledging that "people are more productive when they're alone," and then stressed "but they're more collaborative and innovative when they're together. Some of the best ideas come from pulling two different ideas together." 

 

The shift in policy affects roughly 200 of Yahoo's 12,000 employees.

 

As an example of that collaboration, Mayer touted the newly-launched Yahoo Weather app for iOS, which uses built-in geolocation technology in Flickr photo albums to help users get a more accurate image of local weather -- an idea, she explained, originated by two software engineers who work in the same office.

 

By using the image of a purple elephant in her presentation, Mayer poked fun at her own management gaffe, which, as Fortune's Pattie Sellers argued, wasn't the policy itself but how it was unveiled to the public.

Is it irony or humor that Mayer is sharing her "purple elephant" as the closing keynote at the Great Place to Work conference at the Hyatt Regency Century City in Los Angeles Thursday?   ~  D
