Podcast: How Matthew Michalewicz founded and sold a software company

In 2005, Matthew co-founded SolveIT Software, an Australian software company, which he grew from zero to more than 150 employees in seven years, before selling the business for plenty!


This is one of those interviews that could have gone on for much longer than the allocated 30-ish minutes. You see, Matthew Michalewicz is one smart guy. Under his leadership, SolveIT became the 3rd fasting-growing company in Australia with revenue growth of 678%.

With such success comes loads of learnings and insights – from the role marketing played in SolveIT’s meteoric rise, to how one beats Goliath, to the importance of being persuasive and how to nail your pitch. This Small Business, Big Marketing podcast covers all these topics and more. So grab a cuppa, pen and paper and be ready for some marketing gold!

About these podcasts: The Small Business, Big Marketing podcasts are characterised by plenty of chit chat from Tim who’ll typically kick off with nuggets of advice and tell shaggy dog stories before diving in to the episode’s topic. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
