Episode 1: Pure Pursuit
Welcome to the first episode of In Layman’s Terms. Episode 1 features Glen Dakan, a Navy pilot turned tech startup entrepreneur. Glen took his frustration of attempting to purchase a BMW M5 from multiple states away and turned it into a business model with the launch of Pure Pursuit, a dealership catering to sub-exotic car enthusiasts.
Glen knew his technology platform made his dealership unique, but there was just one problem, he had no experience in the automobile industry. Even though he’d been shot at while flying missions, every step to launching his dealership was pushing a comfort zone. You’ll learn his challenges, lessons learned and how you can apply them to your business.
Listen to the interview here.
