On Episode 27, Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital, welcomes John Tedesco, CEO and of Drip, to talk about the big news of the week — the acquisition of Leadpages by Canadian holding company Redbrick.
In breaking down the news, John explains why the acquisition is a true win/win for everyone involved and looks ahead to the future of Drip, including lots of hard work on the horizon. He also talks us through his journey to Minnesota, the “teenage years” of the local tech scene, the nebulous role of “COO,” and so much more.
Every episode we ask our guest to name drop someone doing cool things in the tech community. John gives a shout out to Dean Hager, CEO of Jamf, and the company’s rumored (and massive) IPO.
