About The Talk
On June 18th we’re speaking with Alex Wheldon, Co-founder of Rho, a digital business banking system for early-stage startups. Rho recently launched late last year, and raised a $4.9 million seed round led by Inspired Capital.
Prior to Rho, Alex was the CPO at Lyst, the founder & CEO of Kanary, and CMO at Smarkets. We’re excited to speak with him about product development — how he’s built so many well-loved products, what it takes to bring a product from MVP to launch, best practices, and more.
