What you’ll get out of this episode

For our first interview of this podcast, we couldn’t think of a more insightful and generous guest than Clarify Health Solutions Co-founder Todd Gottula. (You may have heard about Clarify’s recent $115M Series C funding to accelerate the adoption of on-demand healthcare analytics. Wouldn’t you like that kind of win for your company?)

Cohost Rebecca Gwilt has advised Clarify since their founding in 2015, and you’ll want to listen as she and Todd explore Clarify’s story and unpack the insights gleaned along the way, including:

  • What startups spend a ton of money on that is usually a waste
  • Which of the 3Ps are most important for growth
  • What key piece of advice Todd would give to a startup raising its first significant funding round
  • How important paid advisors are to the success of a startup—and when to lean on them
  • How to set pricing for your tech

And much more!
