Before founding, Arjun co-founded Profoundis, a product that helped companies to understand more about prospects through public data. He worked on it for five years before exiting the company to FullContact. The exit was the first-ever tech product acquisition from the state of Kerala, India in history.

After the acquisition, Arjun headed the Data Strategy team at FullContact where he worked for 15 months. He quit to start his second venture is a real-time B2B customer acquisition platform engaging prospects earlier in their buying cycle. In this episode, we try to learn the learnings and challenges he faced when building and growing Profoundis in 2012. We'll also understand more about and his future plans for the company.

  • When starting a company, try to trust your ideas/decisions more than others.

  • You can fail even when you feel it is impossible.

  • The future of B2B buying and selling would be real-time. We're yet to see the maximum potential of conversational marketing.
