Padraig O'Brien
Starting a startup within a startup

Starting a startup within a startup is a look back at Vectra.ai building their second product, a threat hunting tool called recall, what did it take to go from zero to our first customer, the difficulties when all your customers are enterprise customers. In my chat I will cover everything from:

  • Getting your office setup
  • Hiring people
  • Trade-offs you will make when delivering software
  • Getting going in a new domain, in this case, cyber-security
  • Time-zone differences between offices in Ireland and the USA, silos and creating relationships with HQ.
