Sam Pollaro, CEO of Venga, talks about pivoting his second startup, the yin and yang between co-founders, and learning the value of "hire slow, fire fast" the hard way.
Sam Pollaro founded and sold a subscription service startup before companies like Birchbox and Dollar Shave Club had even been born. While the acquisition was finalized, he already had his eye on his next venture: Venga, a CRM business intelligence platform that improves the relationship between restaurants and their guests.
In this episode, we talk to Sam about the growth of DC's startup scene, giving 100 percent, and joining a startup incubator as an 18-month-old company.
