About the Authors: Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg
The authors know firsthand about talent. Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg cut their talent-management teeth in the music business, with Grammy-winning clients including John Mayer. When tech started to eat the music business, they decided to reapply their expertise to an industry with high demand and short supply of exceptional talent. They founded 10x Management, a first-of-its kind talent agency that matches cream of the crop tech talent with companies ranging from fledgling startups to global titans like IBM, Verizon, BMW, Amex, and Google. The disruptive impact of their business model caught the attention of virtually every major publication, domestic and abroad, and landed them features in The New Yorker, The Economist and BBC, among others.
