By using deep learning, Natural Language Processing, and other exciting new technologies, we can really start to see who is paying attention and who isn't.

Listen to Madrona Managing Director, Matt McIlwain, and the Founder of Placed, now CEO of Foursquare, David Shim sit down to talk about the founder journey from startup employee to startup founder.

He was conservative with venture capital and he and Matt talk about how this approach helped give the company urgency to find product market fit. David reflects on how hard it is to give up your idea of what the product is, even when the market is telling you it’s something else, and he gives advice to would be founders.
