Episode #10 - Building Startups the Right Way
During this live episode, Jeroen Courthout, CEO and Co-Founder of Salesflare, and Anda Gansca, CEO & Co-Founder@Knotch, will walk us through the decisions founders have to make in order to build the right product, team and culture in order to succeed on a global scale, especially in a multicultural environment.
Starting a startup right out of college is not an easy task for an emigrant, even in San Francisco. But Anda did exactly this – after graduating Stanford she launched Knotch, a (then) network that allowed people to connect with each other based on shared interests.
A couple of pivots later, and after moving from San Francisco to New York, Knotch, now an enterprise content intelligence platform which raised $35m in venture funding, has turned into a clear success story.
Jeroen is Co-Founder and CEO of Salesflare, an intelligent CRM built for SMBs selling B2B, mostly popular with agencies and fast growing startup companies.
