H

Once a month, I go to private boardroom meeting with a small group of other tech founders. It takes place in a small, nondescript conference room at a swanky hotel.  The details of who’s there and what we talk about is completely confidential. A couple of the guys are “household names” in the tech space – and their companies (or portfolios thereof) are worth 8 and 9...
