Steven Rosenblatt of VC Firm Oceans on Working with Steve Jobs and What It's Like to Transform a Consumer App to an Enterprise Company Panic with Friends - Howard Lindzon

    • Investing

Not many of my podcast guests can say they got (indirectly) yelled at by Steve Jobs, but luckily my guest on this episode, Steven Rosenblatt, can. Steven is a great friend, incredible venture capitalist and NYC tech legend. He built the company Quatro Wireless during the financial crisis in 2010, which pioneered WAP long before Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. By WAP of course I mean wireless application protocol. Apple eventually bought it and from there Steven even launched a product under Steve Job’s supervision. Steven has more than 20 years of experience scaling startups, building technology companies and supporting founders. Today, he is the co-founder and general partner of the venture capital firm Oceans. In this episode, Steven and I had a fun discussion about his new firm, how he looks in a black turtleneck, the culture of Apple, meeting founders, scaling businesses, his time as President of Foursquare, what it's like to transform a consumer app to an enterprise company, why he’s bullish on new york and more. He also gracefully snuck in a little humblebrag, but you’ll have to wait until the end of the episode to figure out who it is!
