Jason VandeBoom is CEO of ActiveCampaign, a privately-held leader in email marketing automation. (I’m a raving fan because I use it to stay in touch with my customers.)

He founded the company 13 years ago, built it steadily & bootstrapped with no outside capital. And then, 2 years ago, BANG!

Silversmith Capital Partners invested $20 million, and Jason ramped the business from 30 employees to over 300.

Now based in Chicago & Sydney, the business has 60,000 small business customers all over the world.

In this 20-minute interview, Jason reveals how to recruit, build, and lead a team in the face of hypergrowth. Not an easy thing to do.
