Operators Ep 31: Ben Braverman (Flexport)
I interview non-founder/VC/CEO operators that make the startup world go round
Ben Braverman is the Chief Customer Officer at Flexport. Prior to becoming the Chief Customer Officer, Ben was the Chief Revenue Officer at Flexport. He also worked at URX as the Head of Growth and at HeyZap as their Director of Sales.
In this episode we cover a wide range of topics including Ben’s decision to drop out of college and pursue Buddhism in India, meeting Flexport CEO Ryan Petersen at the dog park, and the ramping-up process Ben went through to learn the freight forwarding industry. We also discuss how the pandemic has affected business, the Suez Canal blockage, and at the end, Ben gets a chance to ask me his burning questions about manufacturing in space.
I hope you enjoy the show.
