012 - Copper CRM Founder & CEO Jon Lee
In today’s episode of Analysis Paralysis, I’ll be talking with Jon Lee, the Founder and CEO of Copper. Since it first launched back in 2013, Copper has been one of the fastest-growing customer relationship management systems on the market with over $87m in venture backing. They’re also now the #1 recommended CRM for G Suite.
Serial entrepreneur by trade, Jon started Copper (formerly ProsperWorks) to give every company tools they will actually use to help them prosper. Jon started in investment banking at Merrill Lynch, moved to run a large operations team at Yahoo, and later founded Bazaar Advertising Solutions and DNA Games, acquired by Epic Media Group and Zynga, respectively. Jon holds a BS in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from UC Berkeley and currently resides in Hillsborough, CA with his wife, two daughters and son. He's a big fan of aquariums and is known for his epic all hands speeches.
Over the course of the episode, Jon will take us through his journey of entrepreneurialism and past business ventures, offer tips on how to overcome the inevitable obstacles that arise while building a business, and how to manifest destiny to achieve your goals in life.
This is an episode that I had been looking forward to recording for many months, and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed conducting it!
