If you’ve ever wondered what makes a startup CEO tick, listen up to my Meet The Innovators conversation with CEOs from four bright startups to find out. Kathy Leake of LocalResponse, Kellee Khalil of Loverly, Lily Liu of PublicStuff, and Claudia Batten of Broadli.com join me to discuss what keeps their startups at the forefront of innovation. We also talk about the challenges and triumphs of leading an early venture in a rapidly shifting tech environment and what got them to where they are today.
