Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.

This week I am absolutely thrilled to bring you a special BONUS episode of the What’s Next! Podcast, an encore of my LinkedIn Live chat with Dragon’s Den Dragon, Michele Romanow! Michele became the youngest Dragon on Dragon’s Den–Canada's version of Shark Tank. She has been named to Fortune's “40 Under 40,” a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum, one of Canada's “Most Powerful Women,” and Canada's “Angel Investor of the Year.” Michele started six companies before her thirty-fifth birthday. She previously co-founded Snap Saves, which was acquired by Groupon. She also co-founded Buytopia, which acquired 10 competitors and is now Emerge Commerce. But the really great news is that she is recently a Unicorn! Clear Co., formally Clear Bank, was recently valued at more than two billion dollars, with more than forty five hundred companies acquired, making them the biggest e-commerce investor in the world. I am so excited to bring you this episode with Michele Romanow on the What’s Next! Podcast!


TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Michele is changing the way companies get investment! As the youngest Dragon on Dragon’s Den, she was listening to pitches differently… Michele noticed that her peers weren’t paying attention to the same things she was and the fact that every founder that came through was spending money on the same two things: user acquisition and inventory. Two very basic, very scalable things. Michele couldn’t understand why and how founders were using the most expensive capital in the world to fund something repeatable and scalable. These were expenses with a fixed return and the equity capital used to fund them became extremely expensive if they did well. So, Michele set out to change the system, to circumvent bias, and create a new model. Learn more about her story, Clear Co, and enter the Dragon’s Den with Michele!

WHAT I LOVE MOST… What I love most about Michele is that she started six companies before her thirty fifth birthday!
