Podcast – The teaming of founders and investors

Apr20, 2016

Recently, my friend Jeremie Bacon invited me on his podcast series, Journeys. Jeremie is a serial entrepreneur, including founding and leading one of the first SaaS solutions for the financial services industry, Backstop Solutions.

His latest venture, Synap, is based in Chicago and is focused on aggregating all customer engagements and communication on a single platform that ties seamlessly into your email and CRM. We are beta users… highly recommend.

In our time together on Jeremie’s show, we cover the following and more:

  • Founding team dynamics and characteristics of success
  • How finding the right investor is like getting married
  • My perspective on company valuation and its significance for the entrepreneur
  • The investors of the investors – investors’ obligation to our limited partners

If you’re interested in watching, here’s a link to the video.
