Geoff Ross is the founder of 42 Below and now official rich bastard. We ask Geoff to reveal exactly how that negotiation with Bacardi was handled, what he’s investing in now and what he wants to hear in a pitch from the next entrepreneur who asks him for dosh (hint: don’t ask for dosh).
Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years.
