FIRST SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT
I am so excited to announce that Iza Login Co-Founder of Outfit 7 will be one of our keynote speakers at “Lead with a story” in Croke Park on March 14th. Iza has just sold the company for ONE BILLION DOLLARS at the end of 2016 – almost exactly seven years after they started. I had the honour of interviewing her for my last book “DO!” and clearly Iza and Samo did DO! in style!
Today, almost 350 million monthly active users support the apps, and Tom’s YouTube channel has more than 2 billion views. Outfit7 has seen more than 6.5 billion downloads. Unlike many mobile app creators, the Logins have proved adept at turning popularity into profit. In early 2016 the Logins decided to cash out - the company was sold for $1bn.
What the media doesn’t know
When Outfit7 started in 2009; one of their first meetings involved a manifestation exercise – the intention was to sell the company in seven years to allow the founders to pursue their non profit objectives. They manifested they would sell the company for $100m – they got it wrong! It sold almost exactly to the week seven years later for $1billion.
