Founder’s Friday: How I Built and Sold My B2B Marketplace in 4 years

October 21, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


We will be sitting down with Victor Hunt. He founded and sold Astorian.com, a marketplace helping building owners hire contractors. Victor founded Astorian in 2017 at Yale, raised $2.2m in VC funding, scaled it to 30 cities, partnered with Zillow and Opendoor then sold to Plentific in 2022. Now he is exploring new ideas across AI, govtech, and helping small business grow. He’s currently backed by South Park Commons on his new journey.

We will be discussing:

  • Biggest lesson learned launching and running his 1st tech startup
  • Insights he most often shares with early-stage founders on building a B2B marketplace
  • Victor’s best advise on hiring and fundraising
  • Whatever else you’d like to hear from Bay during Q&A
