“Technology moves very fast so you can’t do it all on your own. Talk to people you trust to constantly test the validity of your vision and IP. Don’t be afraid to change the original concept if you really believe it will make a difference to your success. Stay true to your vision, but it will be your grit and determination that wins in the end!”

XMOS CEO, Mark Lippett
