The Story of a Brand

Sep 30, 2021

**This episode is brought to you by MuteSix, StoreYa, and Justuno**


“To stay profitable and generate sales” that's the key for every single company. Today we have Oliver Mauss, Founder of DRVE, a company that provides growth capital to D2C brands and invests as an equity partner.

Oliver studied Computer Science because he originally wanted to be a game developer. Since then, he’s been a part of many startup businesses, investing, and product building for more than 15 years. The idea for DRVE came out of the problems he saw in startups through the years. The brand offers a program that can take care of the challenges of growth for many brands.

According to Oliver, being an investor is hard, and you can't always win. He further advises founders to verify if they can at least make money through sales and then get the right professional partners.

He talks about:

* Gratefulness
* Overview of the company
* Requirement for the program to work
* His background
* Customer led system
* Lessons learned
* Observations around market

Join Ramon Vela and Oliver Mauss as they break down the inside story on The Story of a Brand.
