Welcome to today’s podcast in Singapore. I have to admit sometimes, and if you’re an entrepreneur, you know what I mean. I just feel so alone and isolated, even in the startup community.
Introducing Tim, the Founder of Waitrr, he’s raised over a million dollars with his app that lets you order and pay with your mobile phone to removing one of the more annoying processes when you go to a restaurant. If you’re considering an MBA to further your career, or want to start a marketplace or an app in the restaurant industry, this podcast episode is for you.
Hear how a Stanford MBA grad built his career at Unilever and Mckinsey, then ditched the corporate path to become an entrepreneur on a crusade to help the environment with a very unique business model. A business model where he would pay all the costs to install his technology and only be paid based on the money his clients would save on their energy bill. No upfront payment and he would carry all the risk. Introducing Poyan, the Co-Founder of Barghest Building Performance (BBP), he’s not only raised a series B but earned his company awards and partnerships with the Singapore Government.
