To help you to get to know the companies presenting at LaunchUp #13 we asked each to respond to a few questions…
The following Q&A segment is with Readeo:
Q: What does your company do? A: We make it possible for families to share storytime together whether they’re in the same room or thousands of miles apart.
Q: Why does that matter and how do you make the world a better place? A: With families living farther apart than ever, we think technology has a great ability to bring them closer together. Readeo helps grandparents and grandchildren, long-distance parents and their kids, military families and more to build relationships despite the distance that sometimes separates them. Why does it matter? How does it make the world a better place? If we all took time to read a children’s book or spend a few minuted with a child once a week or so, I think we’d all have a lot healthier view of the world and our relationships.
Q: Why is your company cool? A: We’re not necessarily cool, but what we’re trying to do it. We’re super small (and quick as a result), our customers love us, and we’re already making a big difference in people’s lives. Oh- and angel investors and big publishers have faith in us, so that might not make us cool either, but it’s pretty fun to work when those sorts of people are behind what you’re doing.
Q: What 3 lessons/observations would you tell other entrepreneurs? A: 1. Dream big, but figure out how to do it small. 2. Find the right people fast. 3. Never stop trying new things
Q: Pick 5 people for your entrepreneur dream team (assuming you and your team were riding the bench) A: Richard Branson, Tony Hsieh
Q: Which one pursuit? Golf, Basketball, Skiing/Snowboarding, Knitting, Mountaineering/Climbing, Bowling, Watching Grass Grow A: Skiing
Q: Why are you an entrepreneur in Utah? A: Honestly, because that’s where I live and I believe you can do just about anything from anywhere these days. Our CEO is from Utah but lives in Chicago right now because that’s where he got his MBA and hooked up with our largest investors. I live in Utah because its a great place to live, and so far as we know, a good place to do business.
