Without a doubt, Jojo Hedaya is passionate about solving problems that he experiences.
As the CEO of Unroll.me he has let passion serve as the catalyst for getting to solutions to problems quickly.
Unroll.me even came about as the result of a pesky problem many people face.
When his now business partner, Josh Rosenwald, wasn’t answering Hedaya’s emails, he knew that was a signal to discover why.
What they both realized is that all to often emails get buried in the deep recesses of an in-box.
This can make knowing if someone emailed you be next to impossible.
After realizing that Rosenwald couldn’t even find Hedaya’s emails, they knew that a solution was needed.
In only two short months, they were able to bring a version of Unroll.me to the market.
As the company grows and gains market share, Hedaya is using his passion for problem solving to continuously fine-tune the unroll.me application.
Even though he never completed his degree from Boston College, he understands that to succeed in the startup world, you must continuously hone a marketable set of skills.
Surviving the first five years in a startup can feel impossible. The odds are stacked against you.
An estimated 90% of startups fail in the first five years.
Thankfully, Hedaya has the support of his family to continue pursuing his passion with unroll.me.
He truly believes in doing what you love to create the life that you envision for yourself down the line.
The most candid advice he can share is this: if you have an idea, launch it.
Hedaya also advises to plan for setbacks and success.
That mindset has also contributed to the growth of unroll.me the past five years.
With more and more people wanting to take control over their email in-box, unroll.me, is on track to experience continued growth in a burgeoning market.
