6 Lessons Elias Torres Learned (The Hard Way) When Building Drift
Play • 26 min

"Pivots are very important because it shows that you're learning. It shows that you're validating, or invalidating, a hypothesis."

This is just one of the many lessons Elias learned as he and his co-founder, David Cancel, built Drift from the ground up.

Drift now has over 600 employees and has reached unicorn status, but that doesn't mean it's always been (or is) easy. On this episode of the American Dream podcast, we're bringing back a talk Elias did with Forum Ventures - an early-stage fund, program, and community for B2B SaaS startups - where he shared his journey with Drift.

In the episode, you'll hear the original idea for Drift, why he and David decided to pivot, and what experiencing three economic downturns has taught Elias.
