Success outside of Silicon Valley with Dennis Pilarinos [ LAUNCH TALK ]

This month’s Launch Talk, we were joined by Dennis Pilarinos. Dennisis the founder and CEO of Buddybuild, a continuous integration, delivery and user feedback platform that was designed and built specifically for mobile app developers. Prior to Buddybuild, Dennis held product and engineering leadership roles at Amazon and Microsoft.

To recap, we learned how to:

  • Assemble a team: what it is like to hire top talent outside of the Silicon Valley bubble and where to look
  • Establish credibility: what experience looks like
  • Fundraise from top-tier Silicon Valley Venture Capitalists: how VC’s look upon an abroad-based company, how startups use their remote location as an advantage when fundraising, and common VC responses to a raising startup that’s located outside of the Valley
  • Connect to customers

Thank you Dennis for sharing your insight!
