Prior to founding Hola, Derry and Ofer founded Jungo to develop the leading operating system for home routers. In 2006 Jungo was acquired by NDS (Cisco) for $107M. It employed 170 people and was profitable. They then had a thesis that HTTP could be re-invented to make the Internet much faster and more open. They started Hola.
In this meetup, Ofer will walk you through 6 lessons learned from Jungo and Hola to achieve 100 million users.
1. Where is the marketing budget? 2. How will we make it ‘viral’? 3. Can we deliver next week? 4. Fast evolution: initial idea are overrated 5. Super-team 6. The team’s DNA is the secret sauce
