“It’s easy to get caught in the weeds when building something new. The “easy button” model forces you to strip away all of the features, buttons, and crazy business models – because none of it matters if your customer can’t hit that big red button.” 

In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, sponsored by Mastercard, Raymond discusses the founder mindset, the “easy button” model, and his mission to solve the global problem of private-market funding.
