#smallrooms podcast: Andrew Peek on Shopify acquisitions and too much funding

#smallrooms podcast

Rob Kenedi sits down with Andrew Peek, founder of Pilot, a note-taking startup scooped up alongside Jet Cooper when it was acquired by Shopify, who describes his strategy to start his next company. Andrew recounts his startup experience while building a product company within a services company, some product decisions that he would have made differently in retrospect, and how too much funding made his experience trickier than one would expect. Having left Shopify post acquisition, Andrew describes his hard-earned rigour around creating his next venture and the process by which he decided to pursue the startup.

Entrepreneurs in Small Rooms Drinking Coffee, or #smallrooms, is a podcast where Rob Kenedi talks candidly with entrepreneurs and investors about the details of starting a tech company. Get into the trenches with the people going through the process of building a technology company in real time.
