It’s not every day I get to interview the founder of a multiBILLION dollar startup. Today, however, is indeed such a day.
That founder is Mike Evans of Grubhub and—more recently—Fixer fame.
Mike has a brand new book out today that unpacks his story in entertaining fashion. The book is called HANGRY: A Startup Journey.
In Hangry, Mike details, step-by-step, the grind of building an innovative business with each chapter including sharp lessons for entrepreneurs and startups that he learned on the fly as he piloted GrubHub by the seat of his pants.
Hangry reveals a decade of eighty-hour work weeks, detailed steps of how Mike garnered his first customers, his hunt for financing dollars, cliffhanger acquisitions, the near collapse of his marriage, a brutally difficult merger, and a pair of tumultuous quit/unquit moments, all to steer the company to become one of the most successful startups in the world.
There’s plenty of razor-sharp wit, as reveals hard-won truths about how startups succeed—and even harder-won truths about how startups fail.
