What I do: As a startup founder, there is no hat I haven’t worn, from software engineer and sales developer to marketing executive and customer success representative. I love to be hands-on with every department by stepping up to challenges with each team instead of stepping on toes. I encourage balance throughout the entire company and strive to maintain balance regarding support and taking action.
How I got here: We didn’t realize it was our lucky night when a friend and I were waiting in line at an event back in 2009. Who knew we would come up with a revolutionary startup idea out of boredom in that slow-moving queue?! After that night, two friends decided to quit their jobs and digitalize the then pen-and-paper (and somewhat static) events industry.
My greatest career accomplishment: I am proud to run a global startup established in offices on three continents with 20 beating hearts who act, think, communicate and work like everyone in the same office and time zone.
Impressive stats: I started our official sales operations in 2014, and we have doubled our revenue every year since. We bootstrapped Boomset with our savings, raised our first friends and family seed round, and became profitable with no additional investments. We have reduced the waiting time from three hours to 25 minutes for the most significant video conference in the United States, which attracts 30,000 people annually.
