Turning Customer Obsession into Investor Connection

Four companies representing tech, beauty, education and fashion have launched their Regulation A offerings and are open for investment from the general public, including viewers. In this episode of Going Public, we meet our new mentor, Jaime Schmidt. Schmidt took her company, Schmidt Naturals, from her kitchen to $25 million in revenue, to an eventual acquisition by UniLever. The founders of PROVEN, Ming and Amy, are excited to see how much they have in common with their new mentor and are eager to hear her advice on scaling their company and getting more customers.

Jeff Hoffman is back to working his branding magic with the founders of TREBEL and Hammitt. First up, Jeff will ask TREBEL to hone in on what differentiates their product from other music apps. Co-founder Bob Vanech explains exactly who their customers are and the need for an app like theirs. Along the way they, will hear from Jeff about customer intimacy and customer discovery — two concepts that will be very important to gaining new users. Going Public will venture to Mexico to meet TREBEL partner Televisa and learn why TREBEL is so important to the Latin market.
