Altuity founder and CEO, Steve Voller, spoke to BusinessCloud about the hang gliding accident that started his career in tech.
Speaking to Jonathan Symcox, Voller recounted how a broken leg when he was 23 led to a shift in priorities that led him down the path of technology: ‘It was a particularly freezing cold day in January and great soaring conditions, I’d been up for a while then come down for a break, but the wind had risen when I took off again.’
‘It became increasingly difficult to control what I was trying to do. I was fighting a losing battle. There’s a point where you realise things have gone too far and something bad is gonna happen… ‘this is gonna hurt!’’
