About this interview
I’m going to talk to Brandon about the whole story of his startup, IMSafer, from conception to sale. But I want to pay special attention to the challenges he had AFTER he got funding. Many entrepreneurs seem to think that once they get investors, life becomes easy. Listen to his story to get perspective.
