Episode 85:

Interview with Tom McLeod, founder of Omni

Nobody likes dealing with storage units but millions of American's still have one. Putting your stuff into boxes, driving 15 minutes to the nearest facility and then unloading them is a task nobody enjoys. Then what happens when you need something from one of those boxes? Do you go back to the storage unit and rummage through the boxes hoping to miraculously find the item you're looking for? or do you go buy a new item because the current process is just too time consuming with too many headaches?

What if there was a company that came to your house, whisked away all the things that are taking up space, then photographed and categorized them for you to browse in an app? What if that same company offered an on-demand service where you could have any of your items returned to you at the tap of a button? Sounds too good to be true right? well...

Meet Omni, the company that wants everyone to have access to whatever they need, whenever they need it – no matter the size of the place they live – making your life easier when it comes to storing, accessing, and even sharing your personal belongings.

In this episode I spoke with Tom McLeod the founder of Omni. We discussed in detail this new business model for the $35 billion physical storage industry and why he decided to launch this company with his co-founders. The company has already gained significant traction which helped them raise $10 million from some very prominent investors. We talked about Omni's mission, building the company culture, growth and marketing (lots of referrals), the pricing model, how and when Omni will expand, disrupting an old industry with new technology and so much more.
