This installment of Five Questions and One Link requires full disclosure: Undercurrent worked with Unpakt to help conceptualize the product and place the key creative and technical partners. But regardless of our personal connection, Unpakt is the disruptive kind a startup we always admire. With the goal of bringing transparency, simplicity and accurate pricing to the arduous process of moving, the service lets users search, compare and book movers online. Daniel Cooke, General Manager of Unpakt, took on this batch of questions. 1) In 140 characters or less, what problem is your company solving?
Finding a great mover and getting pricing is a time-consuming, difficult process. Unpakt is a digital service that makes it fast and easy.
2) If you could travel back in time, what would you do differently?
Start Unpakt two years ago, in time for my last move!
3) What do you think your company will look like in one year?
Our goal is to be the nation's one-stop-shop for all things moving.
4) What's the one piece of advice you'd give an aspiring entrepreneur?
Get started. Don’t wait any longer, just start.
5) Lean, agile or waterfall?
Lean and agile make the perfect pair.
