Talking hyper-growth, lessons learned from failure, and insurance industry inside baseball with Parker Conrad, CEO and co-founder of Zenefits.
The multi-trillion dollar insurance industry is under attack from a variety of startups, and none have received more attention or funding than Zenefits. The insurance tech startup has become known as “the fastest growing startup of all-time” and has battled large incumbents like ADP and governments such as Utah’s along the way.
In episode 3 of the CB Insights podcast, we sat down with Parker Conrad, the CEO and co-founder of Zenefits.
A few highlights from the podcast include:
- Parker telling entrepreneurs that sometimes it’s best to know when to give up.
- The prediction that insurance brokers will be gone in 10 years.
- The hardest things about running a hyper-growth company.
