Keith Johnson
Petbrosia
Owner

Petbrosia creates custom blended food for dogs and cats shipped directly to your door. Using algorithms developed via the latest research from vet schools and pet nutritionists, Petbrosia can determine a pets’ distinct nutritional needs and create a food blend that’s customized for each animal’s breed, age, activity level and more.

Petbrosia delivers the blend straight to your home and adjusts the formula as your pet ages or as your input changes about your pet’s health status.

BusinessInterviews.com: How did you come up with the concept behind Petbrosia?

Keith: I came up with the idea after realizing there was nothing on the market that provided the proper diets for my two rescue dogs, Mickey and Rosie (Jack-Russell and Beagle mixes). Although Mickey and Rosie are brother and sister, I quickly learned they have different nutritional needs – one was too thin and the other was overweight. From my category background, research showed that by feeding pets to their ideal body condition they can live longer and have a higher quality of life.

BusinessInterviews.com: What are the most common mistakes you see businesses make when it comes to website design and how can they be avoided?

Brian: This may sound counterintuitive but the biggest mistake (and the most easily avoided) is when they think about the website’s design first. As a result we see a LOT of really pretty websites that don’t do a good job of actually generating more business. This can be avoided by putting a little time into the strategy prior to building the website.

Tim Handorf
G2 Crowd
Co-Founder and President

fter spending years in the enterprise software industry, Tim Handorf, Godard Abel, Matt Gorniak, Michael Wheeler and Mark Myers saw glaring problems in how business technology was bought and sold. There was nowhere to turn for real, unbiased feedback or for advice from people who had actually implemented and used the software and related services.

G2 Crowd was launched to be a trusted source of business software reviews from real users. They launched the Beta version of the site in February 2013. Since then, they’ve collected nearly 20,000 reviews of products across several hundred categories, such as marketing automation, payroll software and business intelligence platforms, and more than half a million answers to the questions software buyers care about most.

BusinessInterviews.com:  Why do you believe that the current approach to buying business technology is broken and how are you working to fix it?
