Our first guest is Rafael Sanches. I've known him for about 7 years. We've met while he was running Allthecooks, which he bootstrapped, grew it to become the number #1 recipe app in the U.S., and sold it to Cookpad, the biggest recipe website in the world.
Today, he’s the founder of Anycart, an online grocery service that makes it easy and affordable for consumers in more than 3,400 cities in the U.S. to shop for groceries and cook the meals they love. Their investors include Menlo, Pear and Greycroft.
Rafael is a relentless inevitable founder, a phenomenal contrarian, and a brilliant product genius. And it's rare for me to use these adjectives to describe people. I hope you enjoy the incredible conversation we've had for this episode and learn from his beautiful and inspiring story.
In the episode, I asked him questions such as:
I hope you like it!
