Saeed Amidi

Podcast – Episode 86:
Empowering Greatness in the World of Tech

How hard work and the right approach leads to success

We all dream of finding the next big thing in tech, and some of us may remember coming into contact with some of the biggest tech companies in the world before they made it big – but how about being there and contributing to the formation of some of the biggest brands? That’s a blessing, a privilege only a few have enjoyed, but we got one of these few here on our podcast – meet Saeed Amidi, the CEO of Plug and Play, the world’s largest early-stage investor and business accelerator, a company which invested early in brands like Google, PayPal, N26, and many others.


Before you embark on a journey through the tech world, make sure you’re the most knowledgeable on the subject you’re going in, or find and get the person who is. This will set you up for success early on.

We sat down with Saeed to talk to him about how he approaches innovative ideas and start-ups, and what are the makings of a start-up that you can tell is destined for the stars. 

Key Takeaways from the episode: 

  • Why hard work will always beat ideas  
  • How missed opportunities can sometimes be a blessing in disguise  
  • Why leadership is all about empowering people, and why sometimes leaders are viewed as an orchestra conductor
