If you’re tired of your opened wine bottles going bad – and you’re tired of hiring B-Players – this interview is for you.

David Koretz is the Founder & CEO of Plum, the company that makes the first automatic wine appliance that lets you enjoy a bottle, one glass at a time, preserved for up to 90 days. And it’s automatically served at the perfect serving temperature, just as the winemaker intended.

David was previously the Founder & CEO of Mykonos Software, which was acquired by Juniper Networks in 2012 for $80 million. Mykonos was awarded the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award.

The inventor of a dozen technology patents, David was recognized as an innovator by Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

Under David’s leadership, Plum has raised $19M in funding by Khosla Ventures & Las Olas Venture Capital.

In this 20-minute interview, David reveals how he’s built the team that built this super-cool product.
