Once upon a time, a young, technology-minded man started a world-changing company from his college dorm room.
No, we’re not talking about Mark Zuckerberg. This is how Jac Holzman’s story begins. Jac founded Elektra Records in 1950, and his experience and worldview sound like those of the most successful tech entrepreneurs of today.
