“I also love the competitiveness of sports where there are certain rules in place but everybody competes their hardest to win – that spirit, I love.”
– Gladys Kong

Gladys Kong, CEO of mobile tech and data firm Ubermedia has an impressive tech pedigree, with multiple patents and many years working alongside Bill Gross at his Idealab incubator. We discuss what it was like to take on the CEO role and work more closely than ever with employees after starting out in the very different position of chief technology officer. Kong also shares why playing high school basketball, running track at Caltech, rooting for the Lakers – and cheering on her hoops-playing-kids – inspire her approach to running a business.
