Stony Grunow - From living in his mom's basement to running a successful tech startup #16

Stony Grunow - From living in his mom's basement to running a successful tech startup

Stony Grunow runs a successful tech startup in New York. He has about 20 staff around the world supporting him and he's got the number 1 app in several categories in a particular B2B space that he will describe in a moment.

What I find really interesting about Stony's story is how he started at the beginning with no business idea, playing around, just doing something he knew he could do, and let it grow organically into first a consultancy and then into software.

So if you ever want to create an app or want to run a tech start up I think Stony's story is incredibly inspiring and makes it very approachable. I hope you enjoy it.
