David Cancel is the CEO of Driftt. In January 2015, David and his co-founder Elias Torres raised $15M from CRV, General Catalyst Partners, NextView Ventures, Founder Collective and HubSpot founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah. You’ve heard the fundraising story before, but here’s where this one is different: Cancel raised that money without even pulling together a pitch deck for investors. People wanted to back whatever they built next after leaving HubSpot - the place where they were working since HubSpot bought their last company Performable back in 2011. While at HubSpot, Cancel re-built the product organization and helped point the company in the direction that led to their IPO in the fall of 2014. He’s also been the founder of Compete, Lookery and Ghostery, all of which he built here in Boston, and all of which had successful exits. David and I talk about: *What he's up to at Driftt (2:30) *His experience re-building the HubSpot product team (12:30) *How he builds product teams - the secret is very small, autonomous teams(23:00) *Why he hates Waterfall and Agile development methodologies (31:00) *The most important thing he's learned about hiring (36:00) *His advice for non-technical founders (38:00) *Why he doesn't keep to-do lists (40:00) *What’s great about building a company here in Boston (43:00) Follow Tech In Boston on Twitter: twitter.com/techinboston Follow David on Twitter: twitter.com/dcancel One email, once a week (Sunday night) with links from Boston's top investors and founders.

Most people will tell you that the key to building a great company is something like "hire great people, have a great product, and have a great customer experience." But Diane Hessan isn't most people. On this episode of Tech In Boston, she tells it like it is, and shares the ups and downs of her 13 years building and running C Space (previously CommuniSpace; acquired by Omnicom in 2011). From being the first one in her family to go to college, to starting a company right in the middle of the dotcom bubble, to a company-saving pivot based on feedback from a key customer, and an employee fraud scandal that nearly ended everything, Diane shares it all including her new role as the CEO of Startup Institute.

TJ Parker isn’t your typical entrepreneur in Boston. He’s a second-generation pharmacist and started working at his Dad’s pharmacy up in New Hampshire at the age of 16, and it was there that he noticed how much of a pain it was for people that had to manage multiple prescriptions, and figure out which pills to take on which days. And that’s a huge problem for a lot of people - 20% of Americans take more than 5 prescriptions every day. PillPack has only been less than two years, but they’re already having a huge impact on how America takes their medicine — they’ve shipped over a million dose packs, serving 47 states, and they just banked $50M — 30 of which is from CRV, making it one of their biggest investments to date, and the crew at Founder Collective provided 60% of PillPack's initial funding back in 2013.

Bridj is taking a new approach to mass transportation. Somewhere in-between Uber and the MBTA, Bridj picks you up on-demand and takes you near where you need to go, optimizing pick-ups, drop-offs, and routing based on demand. Matt started the original idea for Bridj while in college at Middleburg, organizing shared transportation for students looking to travel on the weekends (and it worked; Matt took home $10,000 the first time around and eventually expanded to other schools in the Northeast). To date, Bridj has raised $4M from a handful of local investors including NextView and Accomplice.
