    • Entrepreneurship

111: In Debunking the MVP & Thriving in a Downturn, Bo Davis, founder of MarginEdge, joins host William Glass to discuss how he approached building MarginEdge counter to the traditional MVP model. Bo shares how his experience as a restauranteur gave him a competitive edge that allowed him to skip the traditional minimum viable product step. You'll also hear how Bo focused on putting customers at the forefront in 2020 when essentially their customer's business stopped and how the decisions made in those few weeks allowed MarginEdge to thrive.

About Bo Davis:

Bo Davis is the co-founder and CEO of MarginEdge, the restaurant solution combining paperless invoice processing with POS and accounting integration.

After the acquisition of his first technology company, and subsequent service in the Peace Corps, Davis co-founded his restaurant venture, Wasabi. Growing Wasabi to 12 locations in seven states over eight years, highlighted the disjointed data and systems that plague the back office management of restaurants - and also inspired his development of a solution and what would become MarginEdge.

MarginEdge now provides powerful, real-time operational and financial data to over 3,000 restaurants nationwide and has over 300 employees under Davis’s leadership.

Davis holds a BA in Philosophy from George Washington University, a Masters in Finance from London Business School, and a second Masters in Data Science with a specialization in Artificial Intelligence from Northwestern University.
