On Season 6 Episode 6 of Think Like A Founder, SNP Communication’s Co-Founder and CEO, Maureen Taylor, interviews Elliot Katz. Elliot Katz is the Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of Phantom Auto.
Phantom Auto’s goal is to solve the labor shortage in logistics by enabling people to drive vehicles remotely from thousands of miles away.
“I was somewhat glibe you could say, right? All I knew a hundred percent is that I was obsessed with this idea. And if I didn’t do it…this was the one thing in my life that I felt like if I didn’t do…I would regret it for the rest of my life. I think going back, if I had known the odds in just how hard it is to raise money and hire and find that product market fit and find those initial customers, I probably wouldn’t have done it. So, I really, in hindsight, I think I had the benefit of being somewhat of a newb, and that helped me.”
