In this show, Bob and Pat interview serial startup founder Jason Cohen. Jason shares with us and you exactly how he did the market research for his latest startup (and our new WordPress awesome hosting service) WPEngine.com, how to price, the challenges of growing a successful startup, the realities of what people want, how to compete with free, and more.
This is one of our longer shows (about 56 minutes), but it’s absolutely one of the best shows, thanks to Jason’s insight, experience and passion. Jason’s blog, A Smart Bear, is a must-read for aspiring startup founders.
(Note: The Startup Success Podcast is currently in reruns. This was show #52, an interview with the Silicon Valley insider and visionary, Sramana Mitra, originally released December 20, 2010.)
