Rheaply CEO Dr. Garry Cooper Jr. joins Miles Lasater to discuss the circular economy. He shares with the key similarities between being a research scientist and startup founder. Garry also shares the key factors to deciding on launching a new product during the pandemic. He talks about how often people are buying or renting equipment and if they donate why they donate.

“I think that founders, at least for me, we lose our sense of confidence and we need to start realizing that we are at the frontier. We are pushing and we are some of the most knowledgeable people on this topic in the world”

– Garry Cooper
