🎧 Podcast

In the latest episode of The SaaS Podcast, I chat with Thor Olof Philogène the co-founder and CEO of Stravito, a knowledge management platform that gives organizations a secure and central hub for all their marketing knowledge and insights.

Stravito is a Swedish-based startup that was founded in 2017. The company has raised $23M to date, and its customers include brands such as Comcast, Electrolux, and McDonald's.

In this episode, Thor and I talk about the founders' story of how they came up with the idea for Stravito and have grown it into a SaaS company doing multiple 7-figures in ARR.

We also cover some interesting topics, including:

  • How they spent six months validating the problem and solution without writing any code

  • Lessons the founders learned on selling to enterprise customers as an early-stage startup

  • Why founder-led sales is critical for startups and how founders can get better at sales

  • How one simple strategy helped them get traction with enterprise customers (and why it's something that you should probably be doing too).
