Episode 132: Jon Staff - Founder and CEO of Getaway

The VentureFizz Podcast

Welcome to Episode 132 of The VentureFizz Podcast, the flagship podcast from the leading authority for jobs & careers in the tech industry.For this episode of our podcast, I interviewed Jon Staff, Founder and CEO of Getaway.With today’s always-connected and always-on world, I think most people would agree that disconnecting is good for the mind, body, and soul. This is exactly the business that Jon has created, an environment where you can disconnect in one of their tiny cabins that are situated in nature a couple of hours from a major city. The goal is to let you recharge and spend time on the things that matter, like ourselves and our relationships.Jon is a serial entrepreneur. We actually wrote a story about prior company called Favecast on VentureFizz several years ago. Getaway ended up being the right idea, as the company recently announced a $22.5M Series B round of funding and is scaling aggressively.In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:-The interesting places Jon has lived including the basement of a frozen yogurt shop.-The details on his background, including where his work ethic came from and the multiple companies he started.-What led him down the path of founding Getaway and how the company got started.-His experience pitching Getaway on Shark Tank and the impact it had on the company’s business.-Advice for building a great brand.-The challenges of building a team in the early days of a company.-And so much more.Did you know that every Monday morning, we send out two weekly digest emails?

#97 Tiny Getaway Houses with Jon Staff

Tiny House Podcast

There is nothing tiny about the vision of Jon Staff, our guest this week. And, “impressive” does not even begin to describe what he and his team have created for their guests. If you’re lucky enough to live in Boston or New York, you have no doubt heard about this amazing new way to unplug and unwind in one of Getaway’s tiny houses. So many of us live such harried lives. So many of us get caught up in our day to day lives and don’t make downtime a priority. We know we should, but there are so many details to work out; which is oddly ironic, isn’t it? And while many people in the tiny house movement don’t need convincing of the value of simplicity, many do. Picture this. It’s been months since you did something just for you. So you decide to splurge and book a weekend in a tiny house in the mountains. You don’t even know where it is, really. But on Friday morning you receive an email with a song list. You listen and unwind as you find your way to your weekend oasis. Once you arrive, you find everything you need to do nothing; even the firewood and some groceries. There is no wifi, no TV, and a lockbox for your cell phone. We don’t know about you but the podcast crew can’t wait till Getaway “gets” to the West Coast and we too can live this tiny weekend-off-the-beaten-path dream. Thank you, Getaway House, for making downtime more accessible and making us think twice about spending another weekend tethered to our cell phones.https://getaway.house/
