Trey Closson is the CEO and Founder of Amplio — a platform for proactively identifying the risks of tomorrow’s supply chain. Prior to starting Amplio, Trey spent time at Flexport and Georgia Pacific. Trey joins us to break down his first year as a founder and what he has learned from transitioning from operator to founder.

A couple of key topics we hit on:

  • The current state of the global supply chain issues
  • How Amplio found their first customers
  • How Amplio is using pilot programs to scale their customer base
  • The importance of relentless focus
  • Why founders should invest in community
  • Why building a startup is a marathon, not a sprint
