AMA with Des, Jan, and Brad
Welcome to the fifteenth post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit is an eight-month-long event that features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams. The goal of the series is twofold: to give fans of the project an opportunity to interact directly with team members, and to give team members—especially those who operate largely behind the scenes—a chance to share their insights and offer the community a window into their work.
The most recent AMA took place on April 10th and featured Des Martin, Jan Piotrowski, and Brad Flora, Business Development at Brave. Des, Jan, and Brad fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, like what the most frequent objections from prospective partners and advertisers have been, what some of the biggest differences between business development in Europe compared to the USA are, and how future use-cases for BAT outside of Brave might look.
Des, Jan, and Brad each offered their unique perspective on startup culture and on the challenges and significance of business development within that space.
Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, April 24th, and will feature Jimmy Secretan, VP of Services and Operations at Brave.
