    (EP37): Matheus Riolfi Co-founder & CEO of Tint, AI Powered Embedded Insurance, Raises $25 Million Series A

    (EP37): Matheus Riolfi Co-founder & CEO of Tint, AI Powered Embedded Insurance, Raises $25 Million Series A

    Matheus Riolfi Co-founder & CEO of Tint.ai, an AI powered insurance solution for companies to embed insurance as part of their product offering.

    A good example is Turo, a peer-to-peer car sharing service, which requires custom insurance for each part of the world it enters. Matheus previously worked as the head of international expansion at Turo, which gave him an insight (and the eventual idea for Tint) because he spent so much time figuring out the insurance challenge.

    In this interview with Matheus, we hear the origin story behind Tint, innovation in the insurance industry and how Matheus left Brazil and crafted a very specific path to entrepreneurship.

    Enjoy the episode, and please leave a review on Apple and Spotify.

    (EP36): Krish Ramineni, Co-founder & CEO of Fireflies.ai, AI Powered Meeting Assistant, Raises $19 Million

    Krish Ramineni is the co-founder & CEO of Fireflies.ai, a meeting assistant and voice intelligence platform. 

    In this interview Krish shares the story behind his two previous startup ideas -- a drone delivery company and an AI chatbot, which he built along with his co-founder. These companies are directly connected to what Fireflies is today, but not always in obvious ways.

    Krish also shares with us how Fireflies has grown, how they built the early version of the tool (the MVP) and why it doesn't work the same way today. 

    Enjoy the interview!

    (EP32): Thomas Smale, Over A Billion Dollars In Company Sales, What Business Models Lead To The Biggest Exit

    (EP32): Thomas Smale, Over A Billion Dollars In Company Sales, What Business Models Lead To The Biggest Exit

    This is Vested Capital episode 32, featuring Thomas Smale, the founder of FE International, a leading M&A firm.  

    I first interviewed Thomas 9 years ago (https://yaro.blog/11850/thomas-smale/). 

    At the time his company had helped to facilitate over $5 Million in deals. Now that number is over a billion dollars in business acquisitions.  

    I asked Thomas what led to the growth and how his team has expanded. We also talked about what business models leads to the biggest exit prices, what types of businesses are popular with buyers and more.

    Enjoy the podcast.

Proving the entrepreneurial mind is inquisitive

Being interviewed by Yaro is a pleasure as his naturally inquisitive mind ensures he asks really good questions. I figure if Yaro is interested in talking to the guest, that person is worth listening to.

Great questions

Yaro asks great questions and draws information out that few can do. I found myself telling stories I'd never told before. Plus he's a lovely bloke with a ton of knowledge to share. Well worth subscribing to
