#150 – A $200k Gamble

Show notes from Episode #150 of the Sweaty Startup Podcast.

Nick didn’t sleep a wink last night.

He’s hoping that within a couple hours he’ll have a few universities that say they want their services, but they’ll need boxes immediately.

He’s worried that with how fast things are moving, Storage Squad is going to order a bunch of boxes but that the universities won’t wait until they arrive.

They need to pull the trigger to order these boxes, with rush shipping, in hopes of gaining the business. That’s a $200k gamble.

With the NBA season canceled and Tom Hanks testing positive for coronavirus, the dominoes are falling. People are acting fast and moving fast, and schools will want their students off campus fast.

If you have any leads on box or tape suppliers, reach out to Nick at nick@sweatystartup.com.

About Me

I started the Sweaty Startup in December of 2018 because I believe the Shark Tank and Tech Crunch culture is ruining the real spirit of low-risk entrepreneurship.
