Today I speak with entrepreneur and Co-founder of the software Leadpages. Leadpages managed to raise 5 million dollars in Venture Capital funds in their first round of equity financing. The company scaled incredibly fast and become a multi-million dollar company. How were the founders able to raise so much capital in such a short period of time? How did the idea of Leadpages even come about?
