Steve Tingiris on The Future of Business Bots


Today, I’m talking with Steve Tingiris, serial entrepreneur with multiple acquisitions under his belt, partner in the investor network Florida Funders, and current founder of Dabble Lab, and that helps companies accelerate product development cycles and rapidly validate mobile, web, and IoT product concepts.

Steve was on the show last year for episode 10 where he put on his investor’s hat to share unconventional strategies to fund your startup, but today we are getting a little more technical by talking about the developments in bots, like Alexa, and what they mean for your startup.

As somebody who is always a little skeptical of the “latest and greatest” thing and doesn’t even use Siri on my phone, this chat was pretty eye-opening.

Steve shares how founders can use these bots in their business today, gets into where he sees them going in the future, and how your company needs to adapt to stay competitive.
