Description

Welcome to a new episode of the Founder Podcast. In this episode, we go into the innovative world of modular housing with Paolo Tiramani, CEO of Boxful. Paolo shares his journey from ideation to the current successes and challenges of creating foldable, modular homes that will surely transform the housing industry. With insights into the entrepreneurial spirit that drives Boxful and discussions on overcoming regulatory hurdles and enhancing manufacturing efficiency, this episode is a must-listen for anyone intrigued by the intersection of technology, design, and real estate.




Highlights:


"If you really want to be an entrepreneur, you can't give up. To a pathological degree, you can't give up. You have to get up and go every day."




"I just want to be the best. Driven to be the best doesn't mean I always succeed, but it's a core driver for me."




"Our philosophy in product development was always to say, 'What product category can we invent that doesn't exist?"
