Tribute to a great man

Lars Hinrichs is a great entrepreneur and my friend. He’s also the founder of OpenBC the preeminent social networking platform in Europe, and the best of breed in the world (more on that in another post).

OpenBC now has a blog OpenBlog and I was saddened to read of the passing of Lars’ grandfather. While I never met the man, Bill Liao’s tribute to a great man touched me as did the WH Auden poem.

Many of us celebrate success carved from adversity by the mythical lone wolf entrepreneur. But a greater legacy is to succeed and then mentor and guide another generation.

Heinz Richard Böse was by all accounts such a man.

Vale.
