Eric Glyman (@eglyman) is Co-founder & CEO at Ramp, the spend management platform and corporate card that helps businesses automate accounting and lower costs. Ramp has raised over $55M in funding to date from notable investors including D1 Capital, Coatue, and Founders Fund.
Prior to founding Ramp, Eric was Co-Founder & CEO at Paribus. With Paribus, Eric went through Y Combinator and later sold the business to Capital One.
In the episode, Eric joins The Takeoff’s Michael Spiro to discuss:
What Ramp is and how it differentiates from other corporate cards, particularly why it wouldn’t make sense for traditional corporate cards to incentivize customers to spend less.
His experience building Paribus, going through YC, and selling the business.
The importance of listening to customers and being customer-centric.
The future of Silicon Valley.
And, much more.
