While many businesses fight for growth in cities like New York (guilty), San Francisco, Austin, or other tech hubs, Dyn has managed to grow into a major player from its humble headquarters in New Hampshire.
In our inaugural episode of Opt-In!, host Dan Pratt sits down with Kyle to talk about how he led Dyn’s marketing and sales efforts to millions of dollars in revenue, hundreds of employees, and a $38 million Series A round of funding.
On this episode of the Opt-In! podcast, you’ll learn:
- What college parties and football can teach you about marketing and sales
- How a tech startup doesn’t have to be in a big tech center like San Francisco or New York
