In episode 22 of The Startup Playbook Podcast, I interview Leigh Jasper, Co-founder and CEO of Aconex.
Aconex provides cloud collaboration solutions for the global construction industry. Leigh started Aconex in the year 2000 with his co-founder Rob Phillpot. Together they have grown the business phenomenally since then, with Aconex successfully completing their IPO in 2014. Aconex now serves projects worth over USD 800 billion from its 41 offices worldwide and has a market cap of over $1 Billion
In the interview Leigh shares his insights on why you need to have domain expertise to succeed, the ingredients of a compelling pitch, why good founders learn to let go and his approach on when and how to expand internationally.
