Bo Peabody is an author, serial entrepreneur, and venture capitalist who lives in New York.
Bo founded his first company, Tripod, in his dorm room at Williams. Then he sold it to Lycos in the late 1990s and made a fortune on Lycos stock. Then he sold almost every share of that stock at the peak of the dotcom bubble and invested in bonds and a house.
Since then, for obvious reasons, everyone has asked Bo whether he was lucky or smart
Bo wrote a book about that question: LUCKY OR SMART: Secrets For An Entrepreneurial Life. It’s part “how to,” part memoir, and part philosophy. It’s an inspiring story that every entrepreneur should read.
