The history of Tomer London.
Tomer London failed many times before he co-founded Gusto, a payroll, benefits and human resources company in San Francisco that currently serves more than 60,000 businesses.Growing up in Israel, London started programming as a teenager. His plan was to enroll in the technological division of the Israeli army, so he studied hard in three different directions and failed in all his endeavors. But soon he entered the military unit of the Air Force as a soldier and served there for three years.
Later, he founded his own business: a technology company called Vizmo, which created a call center technology. But this company did not make a profit for several years, since there were no large customers.After the failure of Vismo, he applied for a job at Google and could not pass an additional interview. But London calls Google's (GOOG) rejection "the most successful rejection letter I've ever received." He turned to Stanford, where he met with two of his Gusto co-founders. Failure turned into a happy opportunity to succeed.
