In Episode 48 of The Startup Playbook Podcast, my guest is Dave Scheine, an angel investor, startup advisor and global expansion expert.
Dave can be considered one of the leading experts when it comes to global expansion. He helped expand Google’s offices and launch products such as G Suite in countries like India, Ireland and Poland, before moving on to join Yelp as their first International hire and helped them expand into 30 different countries during his role there as the Director of European Operations and the Director for the Asia Pacific region.
He’s now based in Melbourne where he advises and sits on the board of several startups, angel invests in the companies and is actively helping to grow the Australian startup ecosystem.
In the episode we chat about the metrics Dave looked at when deciding where and how to expand, what makes a good mentor/ mentee relationship and why teams are the most important things that investors look for.
