195: Eric Olden on building a successful cybersecurity company

Eric Olden, CEO and co-founder of Strata Identity, joined us to share his journey from building a security software company in a garage, to taking a leap of faith to join Oracle, and then finally founding Strata Identity. 

Tune in to hear his story and the tips, tricks, and experiences he has learned along the way.

In this episode, you will learn the following:
1. Why Strata didn’t do any outbound in early days; instead honed in on a long-term, thoughtful content strategy approach
2. Why you need to hire people willing to do the work
3. Why grit is important for founders & early employees
