In today’s episode, I talk to Anand Sanwal of the market research company, CB Insights. Anand bootstrapped CB Insights for 6 years… And now it’s worth over $100 million dollars!!! He’s a really impressive guy and knows a thing or two about growing a company.
This episode also goes into the current state of the startup market, the importance of defining the right priorities for your business, and why every business SHOULDN’T appeal to every customer. Check out Anand Sanwal on Twitter at @asanwal.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn about the data that’s driving businesses forward, you’ll love this episode.
In this episode, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:
- The difference between good ideas and bad ideas, and why you need to be able to identify them
- The fiction book that taught Anand the MOST about business
- And the ONE sub-market that’s raising a TON of money right now
And if you enjoy listening to the podcast, I would appreciate it if you left a review on Apple Podcasts to help more people learn about it. I might shout you out in the next episode!
