103: Growing a Unicorn Company 57,000% in three years with Tom Bilyeu of Quest Nutrition  

The term "unicorn company" describes a startup valued at over $1 billion that managed to get there in a relatively short period of time. Usually when we talk about unicorn companies, we're dealing with Silicon Valley and the cutting edge of the tech scene. Companies that are disruptive in the sense that they've created something totally new.

Rarely, however, do we find a unicorn company that started out in an overcrowded and declining market. Yet somehow, despite the odds, Tom Bilyeu, co-founder of Quest Nutrition, turned a fledgling startup into a powerhouse in just six years.

When Quest Nutrition first hit the scene with their protein bars, they were told by almost every expert in the space that it was insane and that it was guaranteed to fail. Yet Bilyeu and his co-founders persevered and tackled the problem in a way that no one else had thought of before.

First they focused on their customers, to empower them and actually help them make healthy and positive changes in their lives. In short, they treated their customers differently than their competitors.

The result was explosive, growing by 57,000% in their first three years and cracking the $1 billion mark three years later.

We were lucky to sit down with Bilyeu and have him give us the breakdown and strategy behind Quest Nutrition and how they became the unicorn company they are today.

In this interview you will learn:

The challenges of managing a hyper-growth company and how to overcome them How to navigate the classic entrepreneurial debate of profit vs. growth Why you need to evangelize to your customer whenever you can How to build brand loyalty and have your audience believe in your vision How to crack the notoriously difficult and crowded health and nutrition market & much more!
The Unicorn  

Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the unicorn. In the 5th century BC a Greek historian, Ctesias, described a strange one-horned beast which he believed to live in a remote area of India. Later classical scholars, including Aristotle and Pliny, added to his account of this animal which they called the monoceros, a vicious ass-like creature with a single horn in the middle of its forehead.For centuries the monoceros or unicorn was widely accepted to be a real - if rarely seen - beast. It appears in the Bible, and in the Middle Ages became a powerful Christian symbol. It continued to be represented in art and literature throughout the Renaissance, when 'unicorn horn' became one of the most valuable commodities on earth, thanks to its supposed properties as an antidote to poison. As late as the seventeenth century, scientists believed they had found conclusive proof of the existence of unicorns. It was some time before the animal was shown to be a myth; four hundred years on, the unicorn retains much of its fascination and symbolic power.With:Juliette WoodAssociate Lecturer in Folklore at Cardiff UniversityLauren KassellLecturer in the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of CambridgeDavid EkserdjianProfessor of the History of Art and Film at the University of Leicester.Producer: Thomas Morris.

FDR3777 Let Western Civilization Fall? - Call In Show - August 2nd, 2017  

Question 1: [2:00] – “How do you convince a small town that is coming on hard times to refuse government assistance? More directly, how do you convince a laid off coal miner trying to make ends meet for his children to use free enterprise to better his lot when there's a politician ready to say, ‘Give me power, and I'll take money from the city and give it to you,’ especially if the future looks bleak to him? This comes from my anecdotal observation that leftists hate guns until an armed right winger saves their life from a mugger, and right wingers hate government until a left winger gives them government drip to tide them and their family over in a crisis.”

Question 2: [37:46] – “You have compared God to a mythical unicorn, in that the inability to empirically prove either's existence is a sign of nonexistence. The difference however is that God has a perceivable effect on the world and a unicorn does not. Love, courage and beauty are the chief examples that go beyond our biological queues and speak to something greater than nature. In the case of UPB, for behavior to be preferable that means there is behavior that is not preferable. But in nature there is no such thing as preferable or not preferable, just whether or not urges are satisfied and reproduction takes place. Doesn't our ability to discern between what is moral and immoral in a society and in ourselves speak to the effect God has on our world vs. the nonexistence of a unicorn?”

Question 3: [54:39] – “Though I'm fairly self-aware, in my relationship there are issues that are rooted in my own insecurities, the biggest issue being jealousy. I feel so jealous all the time because I feel inferior to other women (mostly physically), and this stresses me out in every way it possibly could. Not only do I already feel bad about myself because of how I am, but I also feel bad about the way that I treat my partner, because I never want him to stress about anything. I've gone so far as to avoid going out and participating in certain activities with him because I don't want to risk him being around a woman that would be more attractive than myself. Although I've listened in and gotten a few ideas as to why my mind functions this way, I can't feel confident enough in my reasoning to move forward and properly handle the issue. So, for the sake of my partnership, what is causing these insecurities and how do I use this knowledge to prevent the downfall of my love life?”

Question 4: [2:05:13] – “How do you feel about the general viewpoint of the west being the villain by trying to act as a cop and constantly financing the rebelling, more often than not terrorist fractions in countries like Syria, Iraq, and of Yugoslavia? There's a good portion of people on the Balkans who feel as if their countries are being colonized, mainly by Germany and the US, what are your thoughts on this form of brutal capitalism?”

Question 5: [2:20:15] – “The question I ask is not related only to Syrian refugees, but to all other less well-off people around the world in comparison to the western world: when is it acceptable to allow people to die in deplorable conditions?”

It’s DockerCon this week…

Everything announced at DockerCon 2015 Docker joining the OCP effort "The Docker client, engine, daemon, orchestration tools, etc. will continue to live at Docker… We will continue to provide a well-integrated tool chain for developers. We are purposely not trying to standardize the many things which are in areas where there is still a diversity of opinions and approaches.” (official Docker blog post) VMware getting more API friendly, wrapping containers in VMs and such-like. IBM showing up big Some momentum stats: “They have grown from a project launched by Solomon Hykes in 2013 to a one that has 40,000 Docker-based tools and over 150,000 Docker-based applications. It has been downloaded more than 500 million times.” Microsoft buying Docker? - “investors wouldn’t sell for less than $3.5 billion” Related: blogs as the new press release. A16Z U.S. Technology Funding – What’s Going On? Check out the Mckinsey titles! “And tech IPOs are essentially dead" Discussion from Ben Thompson. “Realtime” Unicorn tracker What’s “ROI"? I’ve been trying to figure this out of late. Saving money on one option vs. another? Creating growth? Proof that you made a good choice? ROI = (Gains - Cost)/Cost; e.g. ($20,000 - $10,000)/$10,000 = 100% ROI (yes, I made it a percentage, math nerds) Theory: ROI is only a useful metric for comparing costs of things, and if the gain is well understood and predictable.

017: Chasing the billion dollar ‘Unicorn’ companies of tech  

This week on Beers, Blokes and Business we had a chat about the 39 billion dollar tech companies which have been founded since 2013. What made them successful and what are the common characteristics? Sound interesting? Have a listen below: What will you learn from this podcast? What are business Unicorns? Are all the founders 20 year old Stanford dropouts? These 39 companies aren't all consumer facing businesses - what other business models are successful? Despite what the media would have us think, most of these companies were not overnight success stories The blokes also introduce an "interesting" new #BBB drinking game And find out what we think the next major wave of technology innovation will be.

Då blir Neo en unicorn, tech-kontor mot börsen och appar som fixar deklarationen  

Sven och Jonas pratar om kontorshotellet Convendums stundande börsnotering. De analyserar sedan Sveriges nästa unicorn-bolag: Neo Technology. De avhandlar också Female Founders, som snart går av stapeln på Epicenter i Stockholm, apparna som fixar din deklaration och Christer Jacobssons nya doldislåda.
