Happy Friday! It’s officially above freezing, so you can fully expect to see some t-shirts and shorts this weekend. We Minnesotans are… unique like that. While you’re basking in the near-tropical warmth, why not listen to the latest episode of The tech.mn Podcast? Chess, inspiration, leadership, and the professional and personal challenges of building a business. It’s a good one.
Have a good weekend!
On Episode 25 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital, and Jac Stark, Community Manager for tech.mn, welcome Joe Welu, CEO and Founder of Total Expert, to talk about the rise of Total Expert.
Joe takes us through the evolution of Total Expert including his experience with fundraising through angel investors and venture capital. We go headlong into some real talk about the nitty gritty of building a company including topics that keep many a founder up late at night. Finally Joe shares what’s next for Total Expert after their latest $52 million Series C raise.
Every episode we ask our guest to name drop someone doing cool things in the tech community. Joe gives a shout out to Brian Walerius, CTO of Total Expert.
