This week, Jeff and Dan spoke to several different startups at various levels of growth about what it takes to make it. Beginning the show was Natalia Petraszczuk, co-founder of Visionboards, which won the Detroit Startup Weekend and Global Startup Battle competitions in November 2013.
Next on was Andrew Landau, co-founder of Chalkfly, which is a Detroit Venture Partners portfolio company (see radio show with Josh Linkner, CEO of Detroit Venture Partners). Chalkfly is aiming to be the “Zapos of office supplies” with an online office supply store that gives part of its proceeds back to local schools.
Finally, the show is rounded out with Nathan Labenz, co-founder of Stik, which gives companies access to meaningful customer reviews of their services.
