The Death of a Start-up. With Hampus Jakobsson. #262
My guest on this episode of Accelerate! is Hampus Jakobsson, a serial entrepreneur, angel investor and the co-founder of Brisk, a company that designed a sales tool intended to dramatically boost sales productivity. In this episode Hampus describes what Brisk set out to do for sales professionals and sales teams. And he shares the reasons why Brisk ultimately failed to achieve its goals. It’s a great cautionary tale for entrepreneurs. Join us as Hampus and I also discuss some essential sales lessons for start-ups.
