Thijs Sprangers (Live on Demand) on how to crowdsource Barack Obama

January 6th 2017 | via:

Ash Maurya, Eric Ries, Alister Croll, Ricardo Semler and Robert McKee are just a few of the speakers the live event startup Live on Demand has crowdsourced to come and talk in the Netherlands. In this HitEnter interview the founder and CEO of Live on Demand, Thijs Sprangers, talks about how the idea for Live on Demand was born. A startup that in a nutshell democratises the booking of speakers. Sprangers also talks about how you can use the platform to crowdsource even the likes of Barack Obama and how he plans to scale the platform. He furthermore talks about:

  • When he knew he had product-market fit;
  • How a good analysis of the space and competitors made him decide to focus on the niche of expert speakers;
  • Why Eric Ries invested in his company;
  • Why having a high profile investor on board helps.

Watching this interview is time well-spend if you’re interested in knowing when you have reached product-market fit, how you can scale your platform and a lot more. Enjoy! 

Note: this interview was recorded earlier.
