He shares his insights about:
- Where he got the idea for Kiip.
- Why he enjoys management.
- How he uses his youth to his advantage as a young CEO.
- His favorite “management moments.”
- What he thinks the job of Founding CEO actually is.
- Why he thinks it’s so important to finish what you started.
- What he learned about building an executive team.
