EP21 Swish Goswami - How our role is changing in the data economy
It feels pretty corny to go out and say this, but this episode literally changed my life. Just about 5 months ago I got to interview Swish Goswami, who is one of the co-founders and the CEO of Trufan. Trufan is a tech startup in Toronto that helps brands generate segment and activate first and third-party data to information that you directly get from your followers, whether it's email, phone number, mailing address, and the data that they're providing to you through Instagram or Twitter based on their activity and how they're engaging with you. In this episode, Swish and I dive into entrepreneurship, leadership, basketball, and mental health amongst a ton of other topics. It was such a genuine, and engaging conversation and I am really glad to get the hour to chat with him. At the time of this interview which was the start of May 2021, I had a full-time job lined up as I was finishing up my undergrad in the Summer, but this conversation changed things around for me. Crazy enough, after the interview Swish asked me what I’m doing after school, and let me know what he is going to be launching Surf, the browser extension that rewards you for just browsing, and needed to start assembling a team for the launch which was coming up in September at the time. After a couple of rounds of interviews, I went ahead and rescinded my initial offer, and came to work with Swish and the team here at Trufan in the Summer, about 4 months ago. I'm now working full-time as a Product Owner and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made. To Swish – I want to thank you A) thank you for coming on the show in the first place, and b) for giving me a shot at a career in tech with such an amazing company like Trufan. This team is incredibly talented and driven but more importantly, they are just a genuine, kind group of people that I love to work with every day. I hope you guys enjoy the episode, and I'm excited to get back to interviewing coming into the tail end of 2021.
