The Startup Playbook

Connecting you to the best entrepreneurs, investors and resources from around the world

Ep107 – Blake Hutchison (CEO – Flippa) on building market dynamics

My guest for Episode 107 of The Startup Playbook Podcast is the CEO of Flippa, Blake Hutchison.

Blake started his career by moving to San Francisco in 2005 as part of the team at Lonely Planet, before joining NileGuide, a trip planning startup that would go on to raise $13M just weeks before the GFC hit!

Blake then moved back to Australia to launch his own startup which he eventually sold through Flippa, before going on to take senior roles at Xero and Luxury Escapes. Blake joined Flippa as their CEO 9 months ago to help accelerate the businesses expansion across all of their international markets. 

With such a varied and interesting background, we covered a range of topics in this interview including:

  • Lessons from building and growing startups in SV 
  • How Blake translates some of his own experiences across the rest of the team
  • The process for doing due diligence on companies
  • Dealing with startup failure
  • The process and structure when selling a company
  • Building market dynamics into marketplaces

Ps – I just launched Playbook Ventures and our first initiative, the “Investor Connect” event where we are bringing together 20 of the best VCs and Angel Investors to meet with 60 selected startups.
