John Ramey and iSocket have come a long way since The Combine conference back in 2010, when he offered the following entrepreneurship advice:


“At the end of the day, you need to be stubborn and stupid. A logical and sane person would have quit my business, and most other startups I know, forty times before they ever hit that inflection point. The point is, you have to not be logical and sane. You have to be stubborn and stupid and stick with it.” – John Ramey, founder of iSocket.

Stick with it he has, because today he was able to announce that iSocket was acquired by Rubicon Project. On his Facebook page, he shared:

“Thank you to all the people who supported our quest, and supported me, especially in the tough early years. Building a meaningful company is not easy – especially in a shitshow market like ad tech. I was just telling some founders last night that I’m helping them because other people helped me, and without them I’d have nothing. So, thanks.”
