In this episode of CHATTINN CYBER, Marc Schein interviews Brian Vallelunga, CEO of Doppler, a San Francisco-based company that provides secrets management software for developers. Brian has been featured in the Forbes 30 under 30 for enterprise technology experts for his outstanding achievements with Doppler. In addition, he has attracted the likes of Sequoia, Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, and Peter Thiel to invest in his startup.
Brian worked at Uber which gave him the needed experience and stability to help launch his own business. He founded Doppler to make secrets management easy for developers, which would increase a company’s security further.
A significant challenge Brian and his team faced with their company was fundraising — almost all the investors they came across were a bad fit for their company. It led them to join Y Combinator, a startup accelerator that has helped launch over 3000 companies to date.
