    Timing Is Everything, And More Eternal Truths Of Entrepreneurship

    By Margaret Wallace (Founder & CEO, Playmatics)

    Over the past few years, I have had many opportunities to speak with up-and-coming entrepreneurs, both in San Francisco and in New York City. I get as much out of it as I hope they get. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience in founding startups and raising investment money. I also find a lot of inspiration from all of the creative and visionary people I meet along the way.

    On Friday, December 2, 2011, I was fortunate to be asked to co-host a Women 2.0 Founder Friday event along with fellow entrepreneur Ellie Cachette and Women 2.0’s Jazmin Hupp.
