In this episode, we meet Ann, founder and CEO of DataCue, who not only launched her own company but did it with her husband as her co-founder whilst travelling across Central and South America for their honeymoon! I hear you… is she crazy ; )
Successfully securing investment from Startup Chile, despite being foreign nationals (learn how they did it as you listen) Ann and her husband Sharam, a former data scientist at Trip Advisor set about creating a solution that would give small and medium-sized businesses access to big data solutions normally available only to the Amazons of the world.
Discover how they managed to work together 24-hours a day with a young baby along for the ride too, how they overcame some big assumptions they made about doing business in the LATAM region and how they overcame a potentially disastrous situation.
With many more valuable insights about startup life across 3 continents – DataCue now has a presence in Chile and the LATAM region, Europe and Asia.
