Ep 149:

Interview with Brandon Foo, founder of Polymail

Over the past 15 years the email providers have barely changed. Whether you're using gmail, yahoo, outlook or some other service you're probably wondering why things still feel so limited which is exactly why Brandon and his co-founders started Polymail. They started the company a few years ago, raised $800k and went through Ycombinator's accelerator. Their mission is to build one of the most robust email productivity platform available for consumers and enterprises.

In this interview I spoke with Brandon about why he started Polymail, what problem they are trying to solve, why the email providers haven't innovated much, what it was like going through Ycombinator, how they are acquiring users, what growth hacks are working best, what's their pricing model, how their service is better than other email apps, what the future of the company looks like, how do they plan to scale and since the company is based in Venice, CA it was also fun to chat about how the recent Snapchat IPO is changing the LA tech scene.
