Quick Video: The Chairman of Acano


Acano posted this video on YouTube recently, sharing some thoughts about their amazing first year of growth. Fredrik Halvorsen’s comments about the uniqueness of his company have stuck in my mind, as my team has been using, and informally testing, the solution over the last few weeks.

I particularly like his primary measure of success, to remain zero profit, investing all available revenue into growth. As a fellow startup, we here at Let’s Do Video can particularly appreciate the desire to be an “animal of a company” and companies like Acano are a great model for hitting the ground running.

The early buzz on Acano was more about their A-list exec team of former Tandberg/Cisco talent, than the product itself. However, it soon became clear that this wasn’t just another interop cloud, and has some real strengths and unique features. Hear more from the man himself by clicking the video above, and stay tuned for our upcoming review.
