This episode is Co-Hosted by Tom Loarie and Guest Host Lynne Fischer (an award-winning business woman who herself transitioned from ice cream, to wine, to biotech). They talk with Andreas Widmer, who transitioned from the familiarity of his native homeland to becoming a proud member of the elite Swiss Guard at age 20, to joining a few others on a pioneering software entrepreneur journey that ultimately sold for $600 million… and then crashed to zero, causing financial ruin. From enormous success to financial ruin, Widmer hit the wall. Hard. It was Devastating. Depressing. Mightily Discouraging. — but in that two-year nightmare roller coaster, Widmer discovered what has become his greatest strength. He went on to a few other entrepreneurial ventures and is now professor and Director of Entrepreneurship Programs at the University of America’s Busch School of Business and Economics.
