Sometimes it takes a backpacking trip through Southeast Asia
to have an epiphany about the direction of your life. Such was
the case with
Harry Glaser, the Co-founder and CEO
of Periscope Data, an end-to-end analytics platform that
enables powerful data team collaboration.
This week Justin Gray invited Harry to the podcast to discuss
giving his notice at Google, and how he convinced his
college roommate to quit his job at Microsoft and build a startup
with him (even though neither knew what that business would
be). Harry also breaks down
highlights from their start-stop journey at prototyping ideas,
and how the need for data insights spurred a weekend side
project that became what is now Periscope Data.
