CEO School

Feb 15, 2021

In this episode, you'll hear from Kristen Wiley, an award-winning marketer, startup founder, speaker and CEO of the innovative word-of-mouth marketing platform, Statusphere. Kristen shares how she knew she’d study marketing in college and discovered a second passion, entrepreneurship, when she started a blog. You'll hear how Kristen identified a problem in the marketplace and decided to create a solution that has led to a global company and joining the 2% club. Kristen tells how the beginning of her journey did not start with an end product, but was tested with a simple landing page. You'll learn the change they made in their contracts that allowed the company to grow and cross over the million dollar mark in 2020, and the most important factor to raising venture capital.
