Hey everyone, in today’s episode I share the mic with Matt Munson, founder and CEO of Twenty20, a company that provides a photography marketplace for some of the best-looking authentic stock photos and royalty-free images anywhere.
Listen as Matt shares how Twenty20 burned through $10M by trying to scale too quickly and the lessons he learned (including talking about his “failures”), how they built a massive photo catalog of 50M+ images from 300K photographers that Google, Apple & Pinterest use (without advertising for a single photographer!), and how Twenty20 got 1,000 subscribers, 170K in MRR and 10x growth in 1 year.
