having that vision of where we need to take it and what we need to do to get there, and then the discipline to actually execute on that has been a great asset for neighbor.
Welcome to the the 97th Floor Mastermind Interview Series where each week we sit down with one of the makers, thought leaders, and visionaries behind the biggest and/or up-and-coming brands around. We talk about everything from business and marketplace insights to personal journeys and successes, to failures and legacy.
In this episode we’re talking to Preston Alder, CMO and Co-Founder of Neighbor, about his experiences creating the world’s first “Airbnb for storage.” Sharing insights and recounting lessons learned along the way, Preston talks about what entrepreneurs can expect when they’re breaking new ground.
