Chris Rawlings of Judolaunch
On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Chris Rawlings of Judolaunch. Before Judolaunch, Chris started his career in the technical field. Chris talks about his self-described obsession with the universe, math, and what things are made of. This led him to study physics in college. After completing his degree, Chris then went into the solar industry. Once there, Chris realized that in order to control his own destiny, he had to learn the “art of business”. Specifically, he wanted to focus on the art of organizing a group of people to solve a challenge. He decided that rather than going to try to solve equations and make some grand discovery, that he can make more of an impact by solving problems through human organizations.
After leaving the solar industry, Chris started an e-commerce business selling spinal health products direct to consumer. This essentially led him to Judolaunch, the platform that enables Amazon sellers to launch new products and increase sales for existing products in every major market.
In this episode, Chris gives his thoughts on how the industry is evolving. He discusses how we are headed towards e-commerce first or e-commerce only, not as a supplement to physical retail. You’ll also get his advice to those investing in this space as well as challenges and risks.
