What questions do I have about Akoonu?

  1. When joining a start-up or any company, it is important for me to understand what exactly what I am getting myself involved with. I hope that you do not mind that I will be asking some open questions. You are obviously a successful entrepreneur or leader through Clickability. For me, and coming from where I come from, I need to have a large amount of money, and my previous start-up experience did not materialize to any significant financial gain, but there is a proverb that says "fall 7 times, stand up 8". So, I am still looking for a start-up, and willing go the extra miles. Akoonu just receive $8M series A funding in April 2017, so at least Shasta Venture believed in Akoonu products. I have worn many hats (developers, system admin, QA). You have been with Akoonu since the beginning in 2014, is Akoonu the right place for me?
  2. How does Akoonu work? What are some criterias or algorithms that we use to either put a deal on the WIN map or take it off the WIN map?

  4. Who are our competitors?
  5. How can we be sure that Salesforce will not compete with us?
