James credits at least some of his success to his guest's new company, Product Hunt.

 

Erik Torenberg a founding team-member at Product Hunt, co-founder of Rapt.fm, and associate at Queensbridge Venture Partners joins James today.

 

Product Hunt seems like such an easy idea and an overnight success on the surface... but really it was years in the making.

 

But since its launch, it has been on a true rocket-ship ride.

 

It all started with a relatively small e-mail list... and the brilliant strategy of allowing product makers to talk to product users.

 

They went through Y Combinator and then got funding from Andreessen Horowitz. That was all the street cred they needed to explode.

 

Listen here as Erik tells James what's next for Product Hunt.
