20 Mile Podcast: Leif Baradoy, Giftbit & Lightrail
It's all about Grit and Suffering (S1, E3)
On 20Mile’s third episode of season 1, we sat down with Leif Baradoy, CEO and Co-founder of Giftbit - A B2B company that facilitates the sale and offering of giftcards to clients.
If there is one word to describe Leif, it is driven. Leif found his entrepreneurial drive at an early age, as he witnessed his relatives run successful businesses started from scratch.
This drive also led him to become a high-level triathlete, competing against the top athletes in the world and ranking in the top 5.
From ideating to entering one of the top startup accelerators in the world, to raising angel and venture capital money for growth, Leif tells the story of how he got Giftbit off the ground.
