Paul Davison & Rohan Seth (Co-founders, Clubhouse): What To Do After Capturing Lightning in a Bottle Mission Critical

    • Entrepreneurship

At the start of the pandemic, Paul Davison and Rohan Seth launched Clubhouse, a new type of social network that underscored the power and influence of the audio format. As the world collectively sheltered at home, Clubhouse’s popularity skyrocketed with Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, and other notable figures engaging on the platform. Unless you were living under a rock, it was hard not to hear about the platform—from friends, colleagues, your Instagram feed, LinkedIn connections. It seemed like everyone was on Clubhouse, or at least clamouring for an invite to the platform. By the start of 2021 (less than a year later), they were hitting 10 million weekly active users.
So, how does one handle such meteoric growth? What Rohan and Paul experienced as founders is an entrepreneur’s dream but comes with its own set of challenges. Where do you go once you’ve already reached the stars? How do you maintain momentum? On today’s episode, Paul and Rohan join Lance to talk about capturing lightning in a bottle, cultivating community, and the road ahead.
