From 48 Cents in the Bank to Escape Velocity

Loading the player ...

When Shane Snow co-founded Contently a few years ago he had just 48 cents in his bank account. Fast forward to the end of 2011 and the startup was on track to clear over $1 million in revenue. Since this recording, the company has been able to go way beyond that mark and reach escape velocity.

Dave Lerner and Snow discuss his experience going through the TechStars mentorship program, raising money and how losing a big sale helped him better understand Contently’s business model.
