Larry Gadea is the Founder and CEO of unicorn workplace software provider, Envoy. Larry’s story is a remarkable one. After his family fled Romania as refugees Larry spent much of his early childhood perfecting his knowledge of computer engineering. His proclivity in this space would see him go on to secure prominent positions at both Google & Twitter. In 2013 Larry decided to go it alone and launch Envoy with the mission of improving visitor and host experiences in the workplace. The company now oversees over 100,000 new sign-ins every day and has plans for further growth in the coming years.
Hector and James invited Larry on Riding Unicorns to explore what drives him, find out more about his experiences at Google & Twitter and to better understand what pain points Envoy was trying to solve. We also manage to get Larry’s thoughts on the operational side of the business, in fact we manage to get him to share a little bit more about the company's initial go to market strategy, why they continue to focus heavily on building relationships with their core customer base and how they are going about building a great business culture.
