I met Laszlo Szalvay (and his brother Victor Szalvay) several years ago, when Laszlo hired me at Danube Technologies. Both Laszlo and Victor are quite remarkable entrepreneurs who started Danube Technologies straight out of college. This is a story about how they built a successful product and services business around Agile and Scrum, and how they eventually sold that business to Collab.net.

Laszlo is incredibly honest in this interview, and I found it especially interesting to hear why they decided to sell the business, and also Laszlo’s thoughts on where the Scrum community is headed. Lazlo Szalvay is the VP at Solutions IQ, an Agile consultancy based in Pacific NW that offers Agile training, coaching and mentoring.
