On Episode 38, Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital, and Jac Stark, community manager for tech.mn, welcome Jason Nyhus, SVP of sales, marketing, and partnerships at Digital River.
We take a walk down memory lane in Minnesota tech and the evolution of Digital River. Jason shares the story of Digital River’s pivot and their journey to nailing down the right kind of clients. We talk about how sales approaches in tech have changed over the last two decades and their goals to become more involved in the Minnesota tech community.
Every episode we ask our guest to name drop someone doing cool things in the tech community. Jason gives a shout out to Thong Nguyn from Roomera (listen to his episode here), John Strosahl from JAMF, and Shane Helget from When I Work.
