036 Mada Seghete - Branch

For this thirty-sixth episode, I talked to Mada Seghete, co-founder of Branch, the leading platform that makes deep linking to specific places in mobile apps easy. After Mada's mom helped her to get a full scholarship to study in the US, she studied computer engineering and got her first job as a software developer. She only did this for a year, after which she consecutively worked as a business consultant, worked as a product manager, went to Stanford Business School, and co-founded her first startup company. It was while working on that start-up company that she and her co-founders launched a referral program and discovered how difficult it was to link to specific places within their app. Branch was born. We talk about good reads and Goodreads (the app), about working 14-16 hours per day and being lucky, Branch’s big vision, and the excitement of building a team and making an impact.

035 Darren Chait - Hugo

For this thirty-fourth episode, I talked to Darren Chait, co-founder of Hugo, a platform that brings all your meeting notes together in one place and connects them with all the tools you use. Darren and his co-founder started Hugo off as a way to prepare better for meetings, but then found instead that the bigger problem was what happened after the meetings. Today, two years since their pivot, their software is used by great companies like Nike, Dropbox and Twitter. We talk about how having a baby makes you a better founder, the dilemma between raising VC money vs. not, how partnerships can boost your business, and why trusting your team makes all the difference.

034 Harrison Rose - Paddle

For this thirty-fourth episode, I talked to Harrison Rose, co-founder of Paddle, a leading subscription and commerce platform that helps SaaS businesses grow faster. Harrison started Paddle with his co-founder when they were 17, going on 18, right when they were due to join university. They dropped out before it even began. At first they built a marketplace for businesses, much like the App Store, but when it turned out nobody wanted another marketplace, they dropped the customer facing aspect and kept the platform for payments and the like. We talk about how he builds a solid team while hiring 100 employees in a year, why he gets up at 6am, how he keeps his high energy up, and why you need to keep learning faster than your organization.

033 Xenia Muntean - Planable

For this thirty-third episode, I talked to Xenia Muntean, co-founder of Planable, a social media collaboration and approval platform for agencies and bigger companies. Xenia started a social media agency in Moldova when she was in university and built it out to seven people, until she founded Planable to solve one of the collaboration issues they were facing in her agency. Her startup was discovered by an accelerator in Romania, and afterwards by Techstars in London. We talk about why you should hire slowly to build culture, how excited she is about rebranding Planable, getting back to pottery and jewelry, and the long road to product-market fit.

032 Perttu Ojanssu - Happeo

For this thirty-second episode, I talked to Perttu Ojansuu, co-founder of Happeo, a social intranet platform for companies using G Suite. During his studies, Perttu was already selling different products and phones, and then founded an e-learning platform. His interest in entrepreneurship spiked and he started university studies about it to deepen his knowledge. Helping organizations with implementing G Suite, Perttu and his co-founders recognized a need to organize internal knowledge better for these organizations. That’s when Happeo started. We talk about how he spends his time recruiting and scaling the team, why he started being more mindful about sleep, and why he moved from Helsinki to Amsterdam.

031 Omer Molad - Vervoe

For this thirty-first episode, I talked to Omer Molad, co-founder of Vervoe, a leading hiring solution that enables you to hire employees based on their skills instead of their experience. After his military service in Israel, Omer worked at a few startups. After this he moved back to Australia, where he used to live as a kid. He then went to law school and worked at big companies in management positions for many years. It was only after a chat with his co-founder David that they decided to start their own adventure and launch Vervoe. The starting point: a conversation about how the top performers in their teams weren’t the ones with the best resumes. We talk about his pivot from small to big companies, about how to focus on the journey step by step, his chaotic schedule, and how he started trusting his team, stepping away and empowering people.

030 Allan Wille - Klipfolio

For this thirtieth episode, I talked to Allan Wille, co-founder of Klipfolio, a leading real-time dashboarding platform for small and mid-sized businesses. Straight out of college, Allan started a web design company with two friends, that turned out to develop one of the smallest Java runtimes in the world, took a lot of funding, and IPO’ed. He then took the learnings from this venture to start Klipfolio. At first, they built a downloadable widget engine that people used to build personal dashboards, but it was hard to monetize it. Then, one day, Lufthansa called because a lot of their employees were tracking soccer scores through their software, and that’s how Klipfolio as we know it now began. We talk about how that all happened exactly, why Allan recently stepped down as CEO to focus on the future of the company, how he was influenced by his dad, and why he’d dream bigger if he was doing it all over again.

029 Chris Savage - Wistia

For this twenty-eighth episode, I talked to Chris Savage, co-founder of Wistia, a leading video platform for marketers and salespeople. Before starting Wistia, Chris worked as an editor of a documentary that ended up winning an Emmy award. He then launched Wistia with his best friend, with the confidence that a small team could do something impactful. They together saw the potential of video and started a competition website for filmmakers. It finally pivoted into a video platform that helps businesses work effectively with video. We talk about how they grew Wistia from 2 to about 100 people, how they resisted acquisition offers and raised debt funding instead, how Chris’ role evolved over time, and why you shouldn’t do anything if you’re not obsessed by it.
