Speaking Startups With Nihal Mehta, CEO of LocalResponse

I love heading over to the LocalResponse headquarters. Each and every time Zev and I pay a visit, there is always this healthy buzz in the air that is amplified by the other businesses within the LocalResponse HQ, like Sonar and Tracks. So there is always a great deal of excitement and good energy on the floor.

One of the last times we were at LocalResponse, Zev and I were speaking with Kathy Leake, founding partner and president. This time we had the pleasure of sitting down with Nihal Mehta, founder and CEO. We covered a variety of topics from ad tech to Philo to angel investments.

So let's listen to what Nihal has to say about all those topics and everything in between:

I have to apologize for the poor audio. Originally, we were using lavalieres but they were producing a terrible clicking sound. We had to use a secondary audio source shotgun mic. Unfortunately, the mic was picking up ambient noise.
