Event Details

  • Join us for a Fireside Chat with Raad Mobrem of Lettuce, the business solution that quickly replaced the business itself and attracted the likes of super angels Dave McClure and Sam Teller.

    If your company had $750,000 in annual sales after just three years, would you switch to an entirely new business if a more promising idea came along?

    Raad Mobrem did. Cofounder and CEO of Lettuce, a Los Angeles-based firm that makes inventory management software, he started out making dog toys -- and then realized there was even more demand for his company's in-house order system.

    Lettuce isn't profitable yet, and Mobrem won't reveal the firm's revenues. Still, he said the potential market for inventory-management software is so big, he's glad they made the change. 

    "If you see a way to get into a business that could be even bigger and better than the one you have now, be realistic," he said. "Take emotion out of it, put your fears aside, and just look at the numbers." 

    If he'd done that when Lettuce's first app showed promise, he would have taken the plunge "five or six months sooner -- which, in the software world, is a long time."
