Entrée Capital’s “Founder Spotlight” series is a collection of video and written blogs that aim to highlight some of the inspiring founders in our portfolio and to share some of the lessons that they’ve learned along the way.
In this Founder Spotlight, we sat down for a quick video chat with Omri Dor, Co-Founder and COO of Obligo
In the conversation Omri discusses how many tech revolutions come from the introduction of a “trusted third party”, why he believes “co-founder + idea fit” is vital to the success of a startup, and why he suggests that new founders “hire-slow”.
