#43 The President of Procore Steve Zahm on How to Persevere as an Entrepreneur

My today’s guest, Steve Zahm, went from being a history major and struggling to find his way to work at Silicon Valley to co-founding two high-growth, VC-funded SaaS companies in California. He taught management classes at UC Santa Barbara for 3 years and now is a President & COO of Procore, a cloud based construction software company based in California.

Steve’s first company took 4 years to succeed. At the second one he was working for 8 years until there was any sign of growth.

We are talking about how he got started in tech and met Don Valentine from Sequoia Capital, determination and perseverance as an entrepreneur, values and routines, Steve’s favourite books and his advice to young entrepreneurs.
