'Lessons from an Entrepreneur' with Philippe Humeau

Episode 2

Welcome to the Scale with Strive Podcast, the place where you come to listen to some of the world's most influential leaders of the SaaS industry 🚀

I am your host, Adam Richardson and on today's episode, we are joined by Philippe Humeau, a trained engineer who ventured into the world of entrepreneurship from the young age of 23.  

Having sold his previous company around 7 years ago, he then co-founded Crowdsec, a Series A Cyber Security company, that leverages the power of community to drive value for its customers. 

He has worn many hats over his career, including CEO, CTO, CSO and CMO roles. It is clear that he is a true all-rounder and that really shows in our conversation today 

Philippe has a way of taking a complicated subject such as Cyber Security and making it sound simple – and we think you will love some of his analogies too! 

Some of my key takeaways, that I think will resonate with you as a listener were: 

💡 How he came to be an entrepreneur and some of his key lessons learnt.

💡 Lessons learned from global expansion.

💡 His thoughts on Product Led Growth versus Sales Led Growth

💡 The when, how and who of C-Suite hiring.  


I really enjoyed this conversation and hope you do too! 

Lets Dive In!
