On Season 4 Episode 5 of the Think Like A Founder podcast, Maureen Taylor speaks with Jon Dahl.
Jon Dahl is the Co-Founder and CEO of Mux. Mux’s API makes it easier for developers to build their dream video experience. They offer a number of essential streaming services, as well as high-quality data to power video streaming around the world.
Before Mux, Jon co-founded Zencoder and was the VP of Technology at Brightcove. Both are companies in the world of online video. Jon has a graduate degree in philosophy and theology.
It’s like the reality distortion field that people talked about with Steve jobs, where he could walk into a room and he could convince you that the world was different than you thought it was before. And that said it was really powerful, but that’s gotta be balanced by that growth mindset where you’re actually open to new information and you’re open to being wrong and you’re open to challenging yourself. And if you don’t have that growth mindset, I think that’s when you go off the rails.
– Jon Dahl
