RJ Friedlander, Achieving Rapid Growth While Minimizing Risk – From The Ground Up (Ep. 5)
On episode 5 of From The Ground Up, I sit down with RJ Friedlander, an entrepreneur and investor based in Barcelona. He is the Founder & CEO of ReviewPro, the world leader in Guest Intelligence for the hotel industry. RJ has more than 20 years experience in Internet and technology in Europe, the US and Asia. Immediately prior to leading ReviewPro from initial idea through to successful exit, he worked for 10 years as a senior executive of Grupo Planeta, one of Spain’s largest media companies.
In this interview, RJ and I discuss a variety of topics, such as:
– The story of ReviewPro and the execution process in transforming an idea into a thriving company
– A look into the hospitality technology space and how ReviewPro satisfies the needs of the industry
– How ReviewPro has grown to over 30,000 clients over seven years—and the secrets behind achieving rapid growth while minimizing risk
