He pulls inspiration from Steve Jobs' quote, “Focus isn't deciding what to do; its deciding what not to do.”

3) Startup Watch: 5 to Follow – As part of an ongoing series, the Boston Business Journal highlights five New England-based startups that the tech industry needs to recognize. Big surprise: another 3-D printing company is listed.
