Utterly Biased Podcast #2 – Patrick Petitti and Rob Biederman of Catalant

For the second Utterly Biased Podcast, I caught up with Rob Biederman and Patrick Petitti of Catalant a short time after they had raised a $41 million round of funding.

We had a great chat at their new office at Thomson Place in Fort Point. It really is a must listen for anyone looking to raise funding, as we talk about why they did another round of funding from their previous investors and the “signals” sent by doing some debt funding.

As you’ll hear, these guys are on top of their game and they’ve had a few tricks up their sleeves along the journey so far.

*Update* – They also published a book in the fall of 2017 called Reimaging Work: Strategies to Disrupt Talent, Lead Change, and Win with a Flexible Workforce.

Utterly Biased Podcast #1 – G20 Venture’s Mike Troiano and Tamr co-founder Andy Palmer

For the first Utterly Biased Podcast, I talk with two stalwarts of the Boston startup world, Mike Troiano and Andy Palmer.

Mike has been an entrepreneur for a number of years. Most recently, he served as the chief marketing officer for Actifio, the Waltham-based cloud data services company that is likely to go public in the next couple of years. Recently, Mike announced that he had joined G20 Ventures as a partner.

It’s interesting to hear Mike talk about investing now that he is in the VC world. He wrote a great little piece about his investment thesis on Medium that we discuss at length. We even do a little bit of news breaking, I think.

Catching up with Andy for a quick beer in Harvard Square is always a treat. In between meetings at Tamr‘s headquarters, we had a chance to talk about what his new role at Founder Collective will entail. We also talked about Tamr’s relationship with GE, which started well before the company relocated to Boston.

Oh, and Andy gives some, I believe, previous unreported specifics of the recent deal Tamr did with GE.

I hope you enjoy and share with others who would enjoy the Utterly Biased Podcast as well.
