UK entrepreneur and founder of Dolphin Music dies in ski-ing accident
Rob Williams, co-founder of one of the UK’s leading online companies Dolphin Music, died in a skiing accident yesterday evening while on holiday in the Swiss Alps. His business partner Jason Tavaria was rescued using a combination of GPS, Google Maps to determine longitude and latitude, and the signals returned from his iPhone. TechCrunch has the details.
I was at a DrinkTank meetup for UK entrepreneurs last Wednesday (courtesy of Huddle), and joked with some of the entrepreneurs about to set out on this ski-ing trip about how the UK start-up industry would be devastated if the plane carrying them all to Verbier crashed. That one of them died on the trip is tragic and although I didn’t know Rob, my thoughts go out to his family.
