Lewis Cirne, New Relic

Lew Cirne, founder and CEO of New Relic, says that entrepreneurs should ask themselves if they can be completely open and honest with their investors before formally agreeing to terms with them. In conversation with Stanford Engineering Professor Tom Byers, Cirne also says the ideal investors are the ones who inspire and can serve as collaborators.
