Entrepreneur 2 Entrepreneur: Clarence Bethea on Team



Clarence BetheaThank you to Split Rock Partners for underwriting the Entrepreneur 2 Entrepreneur Series.

Clarence Bethea is the founder & CEO of Upsie, a ‘new way to warranty’ using mobile as a gateway to insurance providers.

Bethea doesn’t just talk about team, he’s stacks it — recently landing some big names, including former Code42 CFO Jason Bristow and Best Buy veterans Stacy Webb + Brian Dunn.

Why is the team so important to you?

Our team is the lifeblood of our company. They build the product, service our customers, and their passion and ideas deem whether we are successful. The “startup life” is already tough, and finding people that you want to bring into battle with you is very important. In this startup phase especially, the people are the company. They are working in many different roles to keep things moving forward and gaining momentum.
