Birgit Everaert invites founders of startups and scale-ups for a comfy chat in the startup sofa. Johannes Vermeire is co-founder of POM, a platform that promises “Peace Of Mind” when paying invoices.
Johannes started POM 5 years ago, together with his co-founder Tom Totté. POM has grown over the years thanks to a healthy funding mix of business angels, subsidies, friends, family & fools.
Combining a B2B and B2C strategy, Johannes strives to innovate financial services and focuses on how to make payments easy for both sender and percipient. A customer centric focus is key!
Johannes also talks about how POM coped with bad press. What to do if a reporter catches you off guard with a bad press release about your business? “Stay resilient, there’s always a way out and new opportunities ahead.”, he says.
Today, POM is focused on scaling their business internationally.
