How to Make Speed a Feature, with Dan Lewis of Convoy

After a career spent working at tech giants like  Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, Dan Lewis was ready to build his own giant. In 2015, he launched Convoy, a digital trucking network transforming the trillion-dollar global trucking industry. Lewis went from market testing by interviewing truckers on the side of the road to working with over 300,000 trucks across the country. He shares how the rise of mobile technology was an accelerant for his business, how he used YouTube to learn the language of trucking, and the pivotal advice Jeff Bezos gave him about building a leadership team.
