S1, EP12, 2020 Entrepreneurs Club: Reprise: Joe Caprio & being fired from his job to Co-founding one of 2020's fastest growing startups
Joe Caprio is the Co-founder of Reprise, a Silicon Valley based sales-tech platform that's revolutionizing the way in which buyers interact with software demos.
But Joe's story is one of stable 'career VP of sales' guy who found himself out of a job at the start of Covid, before a serendipitous moment saw him reconnect with some old colleagues to form Reprise; a startup so promising that VCs were queuing to dish out the cash, with them Series A-ing to the tune of $20m in less than 12 months. Not to mention the 50 headcount by month 11.
We hear the idiosyncrasies in tech sales, the comical moments around raising money, and how this is an incredible time to be a startup. A few jokes and questionable analogies thrown in for good measure, this is a thoroughly enjoyable episode from a thoroughly interesting entrepreneur.
