Saastr 013: How New CEOs Can Make Their Mark and What It Takes To Raise Later Stage Funding In Today's Environment with Mark Woodward, CEO @ Invoca

Joining us today, I am delighted to welcome Mark Woodward CEO @ Invoca - software that helps marketers drive revenue with call intelligence. Invoca has built a platform that addresses the top concern for enterprise CMOs today — delivering personalized customer experiences across devices and channels. They have backing from the likes of Upfront Ventures who wrote this on Invoca's recent $30m raise (http://www.bothsidesofthetable.com/2016/03/30/inside-scoop-funding-environment-might-mean/)  and in today's show with Mark we discuss:

  • Question from Mark Suster: How does Mark feel taking the contrarian approach that phone calls are alive and growing?
  • How was Invoice's journey to raising $30m in funding? What were the challenges? What was unexpected?
  • What all new CEOs must know coming into a new role?
  • How can a new CEO implement a new company culture and management style without disrupting the existing one?
  • What does IPO ready look like in a company? What are the requirements before you consider that newt step?

In a round we call the 60 Second Saastr, we also hear:

  1. The most crucial characteristic of all good CEOs?
  2. Biggest lesson from being a 3 time CEO?
  3. If Mark could start the process again, what would he do differently?
