Who's Who in St. Lou Show
Marshall Haas, the CEO & co-founder of Need/Want joins the show to talk about how getting accepted into Arch Grants brought him to St. Louis originally back in 2012 with his company at the time called Obsorb. This company was then acquired by a company in Vancouver B.C. called MetaLab in which Marshall went with for a few months to help with the acquisition before returning to St. Louis.
Of course, being a entrepreneur in the world of startups is not for the faint of heart. Marshall shares the story behind some of the challenges that Smart Bedding went through getting from concept to Kickstarter to actual delivery to backers and other customers.
One of the other things that caught my attention about Marshall and Need/Want was the companies transparency and his focus on 8:36pm. Marshall talks about why they why he creates animated gifs to document that brief moment of the day which you can follow at 836pm.marshallhaas.com.
