Who are you:
My name is Tom McMahon.

Title/company:
I am a Senior Product Marketing Manager at CommerceHub.

Twitter username:
@macmathunat

What are you up to these days:
Having recently joined CommerceHub I am working hard to formalize a GTM process for the company. Trying to find the right blend of solid SaaS launch process inside a company that has been around for almost 20 years.

What most interests you in tech these days:
Everything from mobile to IoT, healthcare and everything in between. The sheer digitization of everything and the way companies find ways to monetize more and more data is fascinating. The simple example of how wearables like FitBits and Apple Watches can save dollars when it comes to health premiums is just the tip of the iceberg.

Hey!

I’m P, working as a Product Manager at Zolt. (Find me on Twitter)

Zolt is a super early stage startup and we summarize the news in 60 words. I’m on to find that ‘Aha!’ moment for my product - the one thing that will lead to exponential growth. Until we get there, we’ll leave no stone unturned!

Anything and everything product related is what I am interested in reading, learning and experimenting about. The more knowledge I absorb from others’ experiences, the more I’m electrified in my endeavor!

(Daniel Nowack) #59

Hi! I’m Daniel (@dannowack) and I lead the LATAM and European activities of Yunus Social Business, a VC for social enterprises in developing countries. We are supporting entrepreneurs that tackle social problems through business models. Some of the companies we’ve backed are a health insurance for the poorest in Colombia, a distribution company for sanitation products in Haiti, a textile company with 50%+ higher wages and better working conditions in Albania or a company providing safe drinking water to schools in Uganda.

At the moment, we are trying to strengthen our abilities to help our portfolio companies with non-financial support. We have been able to enable the first few companies to scale by applying technology. Usually, that’s rudimentary technology like an SMS-based CMS and reporting system, simple technology for water cleaning or QR-code based customer membership cards.

We are looking for creative ideas on how to help other companies scale with basic technology that’s available in/applicable to underdeveloped markets. So: Looking forward to learning more from everyone. :slight_smile:

Best,

Daniel
