The VentureFizz Podcast: BC Krishna - Serial Entrepreneur, Founder & CEO at Centime

For the 168th episode of The VentureFizz Podcast, I interviewed BC Krishna, Serial Entrepreneur, Founder & CEO at Centime.

A common question that often arises is whether or not entrepreneurship is a skill that you are born with or is something that can be taught. Based on the number of successful companies that he’s built, it’s obvious that BC was born to be an entrepreneur. For someone with his level of success, he is also extremely humble and that is a skill that really can’t be taught.

BC started his first company in 1996 with a company called FutureTense that revolutionalized the digital publishing industry on the web with a first-generation content management system (CMS). Since then, he’s started companies across multiple domains like security (Memento) and accounts payable automation (MineralTree).

He’s now working on his fourth startup called Centime, a stealth mode startup that is tackling another massive multi-billion dollar opportunity.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover:

  • Why BC keeps building companies.
  • All the details on FutureTense and its acquisition by OpenMarket.
  • His experience as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Greylock
  • The background story and all the details on Mememto and MineralTree.
  • A glimpse into his latest startup.
  • When a founder should consider exiting from a company.
  • And so much more.
