Mohit Lad, Co-Founder & CEO of ThousandEyes, found his inspiration to bridge enterprise and cloud by thinking back to his school days sitting around a multilingual cafeteria table.
His advice to new founders: Create a common language.
ThousandEyes is a network intelligence platform that provides immediate insights across all the networks and connected devices organizations rely on. It arms network engineers, operations teams, support/service desk staff, developers, and even business users with an accurate, up-to-the-moment understanding of what’s happening in the network–both inside and outside the organization.
What is an Outsider Insight?
If you traced a line through Sequoia’s history from Apple to Airbnb, you’d find a common trait: each founder, partner, and trusted expert in our network possesses something we call an Outsider Insight.
An Outsider Insight transforms the way the world looks at a problem. Sometimes the insight comes from transplanting concepts from one field into another. Other times it comes from the unique experience, background, or point of view of the individual. In all cases, we hope each Outsider Insight presented here will provide practical inspiration for the next generation of founders.
