14 Minutes of SaaS - founder stories on business, tech and life

By Stephen Cummins

Listen to wisdom from the true champions of SaaS. Stephen Cummins interviews founders of hyper-growth SaaS ScaleUps with category leading data for customer success & employee success. Interviews are conducted face to face in Dublin, Lisbon, Berlin, Hong Kong & New Orleans (no remote calls). We examine personal histories, learnings & opinions of the world’s most successful SaaS StartUp entrepreneurs. We cover most of these in each episode; short life history, the WHY, day in the life, personal motivations (many are financially secure), personal attributes leading to success, weaknesses, what makes the current SaaS company special & successful, advice for entrepreneurs, opinion on the future of work & future tech, what they’d do if they walked away, work-life balance, the city they work in, distributed or remote teams v co-located or in-office teams. If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of becoming an entrepreneur (or if you are on that road already), join us! #14MoS
