In part one of my conversation with Sam Caucci, the founder and CEO of 1huddle, he discussed his effort to merge corporate training with the world of mobile gaming.
In this second part of our conversation, Sam takes us through his journey of starting a tech company with hardly any knowledge of technology, and how he managed the problem of when to build, when to sell, and when to get funding.
