How do you bootstrap a company to over $45 million in revenue?
To answer that question, I invited the founder of a company that recently passed that milestone. Dan Engel is the co-founder of FastSpring, a company that helps businesses sell software, games, eBooks, and other digital products online.
Ben Chong says he didn’t know about the airline industry before co-founding Jetabroad, one of Australia’s leading online travel companies. This is the story of how he learned and why knowing how to run a business may be more important than understanding the industry it’s in.
We also spend a lot of time in this interview talking about Mobile Stop, the mobile phone reseller Ben co-founded in the late 90s.
