Founder Fabric: Moving from Budapest to Memphis, Accelerating the Taxi Industry
In this episode, we hear from Virag Reti, a founder of Cabsolutely, who shares her story of traveling from Hungary to her first accelerator in the US, Start Co in Memphis, TN – eventually her journey leads her to a second accelerator program in Boulder, CO. In our interview, recorded the day after the US presidential elections, she shares what its been like to keep going when the company was out of money, how to find customers in an industry full of dinosaur competitors and advice about growing a US based sales team while she patiently awaited her O-1 Visa. We especially appreciated her advice about co-founding a company with her significant other – a lesson in communication that all founders need to hear.
