"The brands who saw digital for what it was, will survive - and that's where we want to play".
Ari talks about where the name FEVO comes from - "People say I wanted a four letter word, as I like to curse a lot", his view on live events - they are inherently social, but there is a lot of friction in that" and his leadership approach - "I spend my days thinking 3 years out and finding the right people to execute on that - then getting out of their way".
However, Yanni and Ari really focus on the impact that COVID 19 has had on the business, touching on his responsibility to investors - "we're ventured backed, we have to be good stewards of other people's money", how they have been able to pivot the FEVO technology - "we leveraged our platform to shift over 600,000 face masks. We only shared the offer with 11 people" and the opportunity to bounce back - "sports, festivals and concerts are core to who we are as people".
