This week, we discuss the future of smart homes with Alex Capecelatro, CEO of Josh.ai. Working from home has made smart home assistants business essential. They save us time researching, play mood-appropriate music, and help us meditate when quarantine life has an off day.
Alex and Josh.ai are navigating the new world of work like all of us. But unlike most of us, they’re doing it while being scrutinized for collecting personal data, trying to maintain international supply chains, and competing with pandemic stalwarts Amazon and Google. Listen and learn why Josh.ai just had its best quarter ever and raised a new round of funding. Hear how Alex is creating a culture well-suited for growth in uncertain times.
What is the future of the smart home? How is Josh.ai addressing the problem of data privacy? Why did his team develop a “Snapchat” feature? What is Alex’s leadership style and how has it changed as the company has grown? What would Alex do differently if he started over today? How was Alex able to close a round of funding in the middle of a pandemic? What is it like being David slinging stones at Goliaths Amazon and Google?
