Ben Jabbawy Interview

Tech In Boston #52: Interview with Privy CEO Ben Jabbawy Pt. 2

Ben was my very first guest on Tech In Boston back in 2014. He’s back today to talk about an interesting year for Privy that started with a term sheet and a deal that fell through. Since then, Ben’s shifted Privy’s business model and taken a new approach to building a startup, and they’ve added 100x new marketers to their platform in the last 12 months. He talks about all that and more on this episode of TiB.
