About the Episode
What do you do when the technology needed for your idea to succeed hasn’t been created yet? Well I have Chris Barton, the co-founder and original CEO of Shazam to talk about the struggle and challenges during the early days of the widely popular app. Also, listen to the million dollar question that I ask Chris about the future of the mobile space. This is the interview that you don’t want to miss.
