2023 – Today
Founder & Shareholder
2016 – 2022
Founder & CEO
All Ears is the world leader in AI driven spoken media monitoring. I led the company for its first six years. From idea to a robust business.
Trusted by almost a thousand customers, many of them Fortune 500's, All Ears has achieved an annual recurring revenue of €4 million with an annual ARR growth rate of 100-200%. I was instrumental in raising many million euros in investment, through various rounds, including the Series A.
I personally closed the company's first customers and initiated our US outlet, securing major clients such as Walmart and Weber Shandwick.
Through my efforts, I built a strong sales, product, and customer success team, recruiting well over a hundred new team members in total. Meanwhile, voluntary employee churn stayed at levels close to zero.
All Ears has attracted investments from Alfvén & Didrikson and Bonnier Ventures, as well as prominent angel investors with backgrounds at Spotify and Cision.
