The idea of being successful is always accompanied by people expecting you to have gone through a remarkable education journey. Jojo Hedaya, however, is an exception. At 24 years he is the CEO and co-founder of Unroll.Me. He attended a Jewish High School then enrolled at Boston College for a degree program. He did not graduate, however, and only three credits stopped him which he says’ll go back to finish at some point probably.
Jojo Hedaya puts it out clearly that if you have skills you don’t need education as much to be successful. However, he doesn’t advise anyone to skip a degree and go straight to starting a company as there are quite several disappointments along the way. You need a clear plan and work tirelessly to get at the very top level.
Jojo and his colleague started Unroll.Me out of necessity. Their purpose was to create something that would help email users to do away with the subscription mayhem. They wanted to make sure that their mission of simplicity was met and that entailed coming up with a clear course of action. When Unroll.Me was finally launched, Jojo and Josh were more concerned with the response they would get the first time more than getting it right.
As Jojo Hedaya says, the first version did not work quite well and despite the setbacks, Unroll.Me still got featured in Lifehacker and The Next Web. That alone led to thousands of new sign-ups, and that’s when they realized they had made some real progress. Despite their idea not being unique, they managed to stay a level above their competitors thanks to the idea of keeping it simple which Jojo is very enthusiastic about.
Jojo Hedaya is already a successful CEO and urges anyone who wants to carry out a startup to do something they are passionate about and not to worry much about the initial funding. From there they can build on the idea, and if passion is the driver, the exaction should go as planned

Investment mogul, Shervin Pishevar, has recorded some of the most surprising details in a recent Twitter posting extravaganza. In a significant number of posts that targeted different industries, the respected investors highlighted the diminishing power of the United States as the premier destination for technological advancements. According to the leader, there was a time when the United States was respected due to the innovations that originated in the Silicon Valley.
However, recent trends indicate that the dynamics are changing such that any other country can become a premier destination for innovative opportunities. Shervin Pishevar notes that pride has consumed the United States to continue believing that the country still dominates the innovation sector. All recent indications show that other countries are also having a significant showing in the innovation industry and as such, should not be ignored.
Shervin Pishevar, is, probably one of the most knowledgeable individuals in the country, which means that he has some insights on what he is talking about. The country should not just stay comfortable and pride itself as an innovation hub that dwarfs other countries around the world. The country should consider investing many resources and technical know-how in ensuring that other countries don’t outshine it in innovation. This should be done within the shortest time because the country has been concentrating on other unnecessary factors rather than helping the company to continue with its innovative trajectory.
The investor, Shervin Pishevar, notes that people in other parts of the world have gained some significant skills on how to develop innovative procedures that are stronger than those of the United States. Individuals and organizations have experienced a considerable number of challenges to the extent that they have nothing to do but to develop the necessary innovative solutions.
Shervin Pishevar cannot forget to highlight how growing countries in Asia such as Singapore and Malaysia have developed innovative solutions to solve some of their problems and finally to transform their countries into tiger economies. Other countries in Africa have also come up with some of the most ambitious innovations that will live a mark in the world. All these indications show that change is not a reserve for Silicon Valley.
