For this episode of The VentureFizz Podcast, I interviewed Paul English, who is one of the top entrepreneurs in the tech industry.
Several of Paul’s companies have been acquired, but he is probably best known as the Co-Founder and CTO of KAYAK, which went public and was acquired by Priceline for $1.8B. Paul’s current company, Lola.com, is a disruptive online travel service focused on serving the needs of business travelers.
In this episode, we cover:
- Paul’s background, and his earlier companies
- The founding of KAYAK and its acquisition
- The details on Lola.com
- His thoughts and tips on hiring
- What it was like having a book written about him
- His charitable work
- Plus, a lot more!
Ok - quick side note! This interview is actually Part 1 of a two-part podcast mini-series, as this interview was held shortly after the announcement of Mike Volpe joining the Lola.com team as CEO (and Paul moving into the role of CTO).
So in addition to today's interview with Paul you’ll want to check back next week because we are going to have an interview with Mike Volpe, which is his first podcast interview since taking on the role as CEO.
