Episode 15-Clove & Twine: Interview with Founder, Dave Hieb

EFor Dave Hieb, being an entrepreneur was as natural to him as breathing air. After graduating from CU, he founded an Internet services company which was merged with 5 other companies and went public in 4 years’ time. He then became involved with one of the earliest tech incubators in Colorado, running the angel investor group. After this, Dave spent 11 successful years as an investment banker, helping companies with his knowledge of raising capital and M&A transactions. As one last entrepreneurial effort, Dave decided he would like to build one more company. Listen to Dave describe exactly what happened to spur the concept for his new business. And in 3 short years, the revenue from his new company has blown away even his own seasoned projections. Clove & Twine. It’s not a promotional product company that pumps out swag with client logos on them for the cheapest possible price and for the sole purpose of saturating a large group of people with brand visibility. It’s remarkable and branded gifts that people actually love. It’s as simple as that. Classy. Classic. Remarkable. Professional. These sophisticated products with a company’s logo are treasured gifts for valued clients, employees, club members, etc. In this episode, Dave tells us all about Clove & Twine and lists some of the reasons why the company has been so successful, so quickly.

Episode 14-PROOF: Interview with Executive Director, Eric Voogt & CX Director, Stefan Ramsbott

EAttorney Eric Voogt and his paralegals know all too well what a pain it is to make sure key parties in a legal case receive important legal documents such as subpoenas, summons, eviction notices, or restraining orders. These documents must be served by a specific deadline and by a third party not involved in the legal matter. Sometimes it’s difficult to make contact with the person to be served (known as a respondent), especially if they are trying to actively evade the serve. Typically a process server is hired to locate respondents and serve the documents. Occasionally, servers claim to have served the documents, when in fact, they have not. So, it is often a paralegal’s job to manage this entire process and obtain the proof that it has occurred; which can tie up their time with endless phone calls and sleuthing of their own. Eric and his team have come up with a better way to hire process servers and track the delivery of legal documents in real-time using technology. Listen as two of PROOF’s co-founders (Executive Director Eric Voogt and Director of Customer Experience Stefan Ramsbott) describe how the PROOF platform tackles these challenges with due process. Whether you’re with a law firm, are a process server, or an individual without a lawyer who needs a process server for your case, give the episode a listen to get a code for your first serve free when you sign up on the PROOF platform.
