10/02/2017 @ 18:30 - 20:30| Free
? We’re delighted to welcome Shruti Shah, Entrepreneur in Residence at Silicon Valley Bank and ex-Cofounder & COO of Move Loot.
Shruti will share the story of Move Loot, the YC-backed full-service marketplace for buying and selling furniture. ⚡️ In only 3 years, they raised $22M and expanded across the US, with the vision to reinvent how people sell their (big) stuff.
Startups tend to pursue growth at all costs. ?
But how do you grow at startup-speed when you’re a customer-facing business, with physical bulgy items that need to move from point A to point B? ?
The challenge was enormous, and eventually Move Loot had to shut down.
?? In this talk, Shruti will share some of the learnings of:
– Going from a crazy idea to a live business
– Building a fully-integrated logistics platform
– Raising a lot of money FAST, and growing a team
– Pivoting, and what it’s like to shut down a company
