We have interviewed guests all over the world but rarely do we get to talk to someone locally like we did this week. Kyle Lacy, the new VP of Marketing of Lessonly, joined us in our studio this week.
Kyle’s career began in Indianapolis having roles with ExactTarget and Salesforce Marketing Cloud before heading off to Boston to work with OpenView, a venture capital firm with over $715M under management focused on expansion-stage software companies.
But has moved back to Indianapolis (about three weeks ago!) to take this role with Lessonly. Kyle has spoken at conferences all over the world and is even the author of Twitter for Dummies.
In this episode, we talk about getting investment dollars for Indianapolis, what he means by “The Knowledge Divide”, and his childhood desire to be a Civil War reenactor.
Check out this great episode with Kyle Lacy and we hope to have him on the show again in the near future!
