Driven & Co Eloise Bune

In this episode, Justin and Eloise discuss the massive need in the market for a technology that digitized personalization, and the steps Eloise has taken to position her company to capture that niche in the B2B and B2C space.

“I never envisioned being a technology CEO,” Eloise said. “I jumped into this without thinking about it at all, which in some ways is the best way. A lot of entrepreneurs have these great ideas, but you can talk yourself out it because it’s so scary.”

Other highlights from the podcast include:

  • The uptick of interest in personalization from both B2B and B2C companies
  • What inspired her shift away from a career in art and interior design to technology
  • Identifying the right co-founder, and how to nurture that relationship long-term
  • The skills budding entrepreneurs need to get organized, build a team of A-players, raise money and strategize growth
  • The importance of having multiple mentors, especially as your business evolves and grows

When you finish this episode, check out other recent guests, including an entrepreneur who quit her job in sales to found a wedding tech company.
