Daniel Mitchell & Andrew Gazdecki — Behind The Scenes of Buying & Growing a Shopify SaaS App
Dan runs Sold Stock, a Shopify app that he bought on MicroAcquire with the funding and help of Andrew Gazdecki, the founder of MicroAcquire.
On the show today are Daniel Mitchell & Andrew Gazdecki. Daniel runs Sold Stock, a Shopify app that he bought on MicroAcquire with the funding and help of Andrew Gazdecki, the founder of MicroAcquire.
I wanted to bring them on because it's really a once-in-a-lifetime story. Andrew Gazdecki, Shaan Puri, and a group of investors gave Daniel $100k to buy a startup. It all started with a half-joking tweet and after interviewing a slew of potential operators, Andrew and Shaan chose Daniel.
You'll hear about how they came to the decision to buy Sold Stock among the other SaaS apps for sale, how they plan on growing it, and what they're doing week by week to make progress on the app.
