Interview with Kyle Ellicott, Founder of the Stained Glass Labs Incubator

A better picture of Kyle Ellicott

Kyle is an acomplished entreprenuer and jokingly says all he had to do to start his incubator was: “sign a piece of paper, call a few people and boom it happened!”.

Everybody in the SF Area check out the GLAZED conference happening on SEPTEMBER 28-30, 2013.

Here are some of the interview questions:

  • Will wearable technology always need my smartphone?
  • Do you think we will get to the point of a Brain-Computer interface being mainstream?
  • Do you envision Bitcoin intersecting with wearable technology?
  • Battery life / energy harvesting
  • When you’re looking at startup teams, are you more concerned with the idea and story, or things they’ve already been able to execute?
  • Does outsourcing turn you off when looking at startups?
  • What is the most ridiculous “slide ware” you’ve ever seen?
  • If somebody wanted to pitch to you, what would be the best approach?
  • Did you go to college? if so did it prepare you for what you’re doing today?
  • Who is one person who really influenced, your “Hero”?

    Ron Conway, Warren Buffett, Jim Cramer, Kyle’s Father and Grandfather

    (Cramer’s book: Confessions of a Street Addict)
