Episode Summary

With the pandemic forcing people online, social media use exploded, for obvious reasons. Brands turned to social media to communicate with buyers, reach audiences and push messaging. Across the SaaS space, many marketing technologies have risen in use, but traffic to Oktopost, B2B-oriented social media management, and employee advocacy platform has skyrocketed.

Here to talk about it all on this episode are Oktopost co-founders Daniel Kushner and Liad Guez.

Together, they share entertaining stories of start-up life and how Oktopost was born. They even zoom in on why when founding Oktopost in 2013 they decided to only ever register the company in $800,000 early-stage funding, which has run on revenues and profit ever since. That is, until the recent news in TechCrunch dropped last month announcing a growth funding round of a $20 million minority investment from London-based growth equity firm Expedition Growth Capital.

This is an epic opportunity to hear straight from our co-founders. So grab your headphones and enjoy the show!
