#037: Ben Corrigan
“The outcome speaks for itself” with Ben Corrigan
1 of 20 businesses selected out of 3,500 for an accelerator. Offers from all 5 dragons on Dragon’s Den. And acquired within 3 years. Ben Corrigan and the team haven’t done so bad!!
Ben joined me very very shortly after Pouch had been acquired as part of a cash buyout. To reach that stage after 3 years of founding (and only 2.5 years from product launch) is insane, and so it was great to speak to him fresh off the back of this acquisition.
We touch on the growth, product testing, preparing for Dragon’s Den, and how they managed the acquisition process.
In this episode we discuss:
Pitching and raising funds
Finding the right co-founders
Acquisition and the details
And as always, plenty more…
