A couple of weeks ago, I spent some time chatting with Chris Savage, founder and CEO at Wistia.

We’ve already had Chris on Ground Up once before to share Wistia’s origin story and what worked/hasn’t worked on their journey to where they are today.

But then Wistia bought out its investors and launched an original series. We figured it was as good a time as any to have our first repeat guest on Ground Up.

So, I’ll affectionately refer to this one as Chris Savage: The Sequel.

Enjoy.
