Pete Grillo talks Iterasi, startups, naming, investors, and getting the band back together

Talk to anyone about the Portland startup community and it will inevitably come back to one noticeable gap. No, I’m not talking about funding. I’m talking about the fact that we’re a tad short on entrepreneurs with successful exits. But they are here. If you can find them.

Pete Grillo is one of those entrepreneurs. He’s managed to successfully exit—twice. But that hasn’t stopped him from working on another startup—Iterasi—and advising other startups on how to play the game.

Pete recently sat down with the folks at Startup Weekly to talk about life as an entrepreneur.

For more interviews with startups, head on over to Startup Weekly.

    One of the best people I’ve seen interviewed in entrepreneurship.

    “Thrill of the hunt!”

    Pete’s the kind of guy who gets his inspiration from people coming up the way he did, struggling and taking risks. Love this.

    Thanks for sharing this!
