Mazel tov to Shlomo Baum on exitWhat you might not get from the average press release or article announcing the acquisition, such as the article on Fortune, is that the founder and owner of FieldOne Systems is/was a Satmar Chassid named Shlomo Baum.
For that you need sites like Kikar Shabbos and Chabad Info..
Kol hakavod to Baum for developing such a company and mazel tov on the success!
Some are making a big deal proving you do not need an education to succeed. I don't think this proves anything, one way or the other. Plenty with education do not "succeed" (in selling a startup and making it big), and plenty without do "succeed". Some people are especially talented and can overcome their lack of education. The fact that someone succeeds without an education shows some sort of combination of his natural talent, his hard work and his mazel. I don't think that can then be extrapolated to the greater community as a lesson.
