August 28, 2018 | Justin Gray | No Comments |

Driven & Co Bea Fischel Bock

During this podcast, Justin and Bea discuss starting a company while still in college, appearing on Shark Tank, raising funds (including from Tinder’s Sean Rad and Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund), and taking funding.

“We are tackling the frustrating experience of finding the furniture you like, understanding how much you should be spending and understanding how it will look in your particular space,” Bea said. “It’s kind of like having a fitting room for your clothing, but your fitting room is our screen with your room and the new pieces of furniture in it.”

Other highlights from the episode include:

  • The skill set a CEO needs to orchestrate forward momentum within their company
  • How to find balance among multiple co-founders with different strengths
  • The importance of R&D, and focusing on the customer experience
  • The realities of raising funds, and staying open to feedback from investors and mentors
  • Defining top talent, and strategically adding A-players to your team
