Interview with Joe Fernandez, founder of Joymode

Joe Fernandez is no stranger to the startup community. Back in 2008 he launched Klout as a social influence measuring platform. He raised $40 million from investors and eventually sold the company in 2014 to Lithium for $200 million. Joe spent a year working at Lithium then jumped back into the founder role with his new company called Joymode.

Joymode is based in Los Angeles, has raised $3 million from investors and helps people enjoy amazing indoor and outdoor experiences. They have 100+ experiences available through their website which include hosting a movie night in your backyard, camping with friends or spending a few days playing around virtual reality. Joymode wants you to do the things you love without having to worry about buying and storing all of the equipment.
