This week we are joined by Gil Carmo the Founder of iMotorbike, which is the leading online platform to buy or sell pre-owned Motorcycles with operations in Vietnam and Malaysia.
This was a great conversation with Gil where we start with recognizing that there is no right time to start a startup, but you just must go. We navigate through them making a business model pivot in 2021 and how they have grown to where they are today. We close out with thoughts on what the future holds for them.
I’d love to know what you took away from this conversation with Gil Carmo. If you’d like to be considered as a guest or have someone that you’d like to hear me speak to, drop me a message.
