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 Romi Gubes, Co-Founder and CEO of Sensi.ai, the world’s first in-home virtual care agent, empowering long-term care providers to overcome some of the biggest challenges in the industry.
In the conversation Romi discussed the importance of building a “lean” way to explore things and build successful POCs, how to read user reviews and interview early customers to find the right PMF, and how they knew to shift from B2C to B2B2C, and more.
