Starting companies from home used to be more out of necessity than anything else. Nowadays, however, it's more part of the model for many startups. But there's a big difference between a "remote first" and "remote-friendly" companies.

Adam and Naresh are joined by Alexander Torrenegra, CEO of Torre, a professional networking platform for remote and flexible work job seekers and recruiters; He founded multiple companies including Torre, Voice123, and Bunny Studio. Voice123 applied the concept of reverse auctions to the voiceover industry, and by 2007, the company had approximately 150,000 voice actors registered and over 75,000 agency clients by 2016. He is also one of the "shark" investors on the Sony's reality television series, Shark Tank Colombia. He was featured in MIT's list of Innovators Under 35 in 2012 and is the author of the new book Remoter: The Why-and-How Guide to Building Successful Remote Teams.

He also explains what he's seen on Shark Tank Colombia that tells him when a company is going to fail.
