SaaStr’s Poya Osgouei has a great Uncharted podcast that does a deeper dive with many SaaS execs.
Up this week is Thejo Kote, CEO of Airbase. His first startup, Automatic, was acquired by Sirius XM for $100m.
The second-timers see things differently. More on what Thejo’s doing different the second time here
We loved having Thejo Kote on the pod this past week.
Thejo is a second time founder and the current CEO of Airbase having sold his first company, Automatic to Sirius XM for over $100m.
Thejo and our team discuss:
– What he’s doing differently the 2nd time around as a founder,
– How he’s learned to separate his self identify from the identity of his startup/work,
– Why he believes technology startups need to be 100% transparent in order to build trust with their team members,
– And how he got their first initial set of customers and tips for building a predictable go to market,
