Standing still in the fast-moving world of tech isn’t an option for businesses that want to stick around – and few know this more than Andy Nye (pictured above centre, in the blue shirt), MD and founder of software company New Moon Studios. From educational CD ROMs to Flash, technologies have come and gone for the pivoting entrepreneur during his 20-year career in digital.
“Somebody said to me that I was jinxed as every time I started working with a technology it died,” says Nye. “But I didn’t kill CDs, or Flash – I was just there for the funeral.”
Having “been burned a few times,” the entrepreneur entrusts his team, based out of York Science Park, to dedicate a few hours each week researching upcoming tech trends should the company need to change direction.
