Serial entrepreneur Michael Sacca is all about making sure freelancers reach their maximum potential. When he is not interviewing with successful startup founders, he is helping them scale by offering innovative freelance solutions.
“We are able to bring quality work to people, we are able to keep them busy, and we also able to treat them like equals, not like they are just working for us.”
Sacca is the former President of Crew.co and co-host of Rocketship.fm. Sacca is a trusted entrepreneur amongst his network of independent creatives who work on products used by millions of people for some of the industry’s largest companies like Apple, Google, Uber and Dropbox.
In this week’s #StartupPodcast, host Rivers Corbett talks to Sacca about his path to becoming the president of one of the most successful web development sites, and how he managed to assemble his team of creatives who have worked for some of the most reputable companies today.
