Steve Brotman a venture capitalist based in New York City gives his opinion why every CEO should carry a Blackberry.
For an entrepreneur, not “carrying” a Blackberry is just stupid. A lot of business people and start-up CEOs think they save money by not having them. Many CEOs have adopted, but a lot still are on the fence 5 years after the Blackberry’s introduction.
Time is awasting. A Blackberry is just a tool so that instead of making a 5-10 minute phone call to an assistant or an associate or a customer, oftentimes a 1 sentence or one word email response from a wireless Blackberry is plenty. The time one saves avoiding playing the voice-mail retrieval game is worth it alone.
