Jud Valeski founded social data analytics company Gnip, which he sold to Twitter in 2014 after six years for $134 million. Unlike many founders, Jud did not stay with the company past the sale, but the decision to leave was less about whether he wanted to stay or go and more about the one-time opportunity to cash in his founder’s equity. On this episode of THE EXIT CLUB, Jud opened up about leaving the company he founded and what has followed, though he fervently believes you don’t have to have an answer to “what are you going to do next.” He talked about that as well as what he has been up to since the sale.
