Fast.co has raised over $20 million from firms like Kleiner, Index and Stripe. It bills itself as the world’s fastest checkout – one click, no passwords. A fascinating but typical story, such as it is, in Silicon Valley.

But then there’s this: Domm didn’t go to Stanford. He isn’t even from the US. He’s from Australia, where his first business was…a towing company. A more than $50 million business.

His co-founder is a woman. He met her on Twitter.

So in this episode – find out how Domm made his way from Australia to Silicon Valley, and how he used his status as a Twitter power user to build his business. Also learn what it’s like when your rocket ship startup is hit by a global pandemic.
