Life of a Founder


“Businesses can’t afford to react to what their customers want; they need to anticipate their needs.” ~ Parker Harris, co-founder – Salesforce; as co-Founder, but also CPO, you have a continuous responsibility to ensure Pactum’s product is delighting your customers. How do you make sure this is the case? 


As they often say - the job of being a founder is typically a lonely one, even with co-founders. Do you ever feel this loneliness? If so, why? If not, how do you avoid those feelings?

Do you have 2-3 concrete tips for any ProcureTech founders out there listening - starting their own journeys?
