Founder Real Talk Episode #49 With Josh Silverman, CEO of Etsy

My partner Hans and I had a chance to interview Josh recently and it was a great conversation.

On episode #49 of Founder Real Talk, my partner Hans Tung (who cross-listed this episode on his podcast, Evolving for the Next Billion) and I interviewed Josh Silverman, the CEO of Etsy. Under Josh’s watch, Etsy’s valuation has increased over ten-fold in just over three years. Josh is an incredible leader, and he shares how he was able to inject a renewed sense of focus and reinvigorate growth by eliminating, rather than adding, new initiatives to Etsy’s playbook. I’m proud to call Josh a friend (we were Stanford GSB classmates many years ago!), and love learning from him. You will too!
