Ep. #1, Feat. Ilya Sukhar & Fred Stevens-Smith

I’m happy to share the first episode of Caveat Founder, Heavybit’s newest podcast. Caveat Founder is a regular series featuring founders sharing their experiences building developer facing companies. Gain insight into what it takes to build a successful developer facing company by hearing success (and failure) stories directly from founders themselves.

In this inaugural episode, Ilya Sukhar and Fred Stevens-Smith talk through pricing challenges at developer facing companies, the type of investors developer facing companies should look for, and the sometimes difficult transition from Founder to CEO.
