Startup Demo: Stay22 

First up we had an awesome startup demo with Andrew Lockhead from Stay22. Stay22 is an exciting platform to help provide event organizers an accommodation system that is embedded on their website. Tune into the startup demo and how Andrew goes over the problem, challenges, and the solution.
Some questions from the audience include:

How did you go about marketing the product in the early days?

According to Andrew you have “Start from Somewhere”. Initially, they started with a small newsletter to send great content to users and then started exploring other channels. There was a lot of manual work in marketing in the beginning.

What characteristics do you look for in your new hires?

The number one characteristic is being resourceful. Being resourceful is such a huge key in a startup. Another trait is do whatever it takes mentality. A startup is a battle!
