How to Nail the Post-Sale Customer Journey with Todd Olson of Pendo

A three-time entrepreneur and seasoned product leader, Todd Olson is on a journey to give businesses deeper insight into their products and users’ behavior. At Pendo, his Raleigh-based company, he’s helped over 2,300 customers–from Salesforce to Toast–build product-led organizations: “Most companies ship something and they move on to the next thing,” he says. “We ship something and then we obsess over people using it.”

Nearly a decade into building Pendo, Olson feels he’s finally found the entrepreneurial success he’s been seeking throughout his career. Olson shares how he got his first customers through community-driven events, why companies should have separate product and engineering leaders, and how he incorporates his family into the company, often cooking for investors and customers in his home.
