My guest for Ep131 of The Startup Playbook Podcast was the Co-founder & CEO of Fast, Domm Holland.
Domm was previously the Founder & CEO of on-demand towing platform, Tow that processed more than $50M in transactions. During his tenure there, Domm was awarded the top spot on the Deloitte Tech Fast 50 and recognized as the Brisbane Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
He is now the Co-founder & CEO of Fast, the world’s fastest online login and checkout platform.
Despite only being founded 18 months ago, Fast has grown rapidly, growing from a team of 2 to over 65 and raising $22.5M in funding led by Stripe with further participation from Index Ventures and Susa ventures.
We covered a range of topics in this interview including:
The importance of building organic relationships
Why Fast prescribes to “building out loud”
Why Fast ignored all inbound leads to focus on building their outbound sales strategy
The key traits you should look for when making your first hire in a new business segment
