Ready, willing, and *Able* - Gerald Hetrick shares his experience running and growing Able, his entrepreneurial background, love for all things Cleveland, and aspirations for the Cleveland startup scene.
On our sixth episode, we’re speaking with Gerald Hetrick, CEO of Able.
Gerald has a decorated past here in the Cleveland entrepreneurial space as a technology leader at MCPC, co-founder, CTO and COO at Vox mobile, and more recently, CEO of Able (formerly known as Employstream) which just closed on a $7mm Series B and has experienced tremendous growth over the last year.
Gerald is a mentor of mine who I have learned a great deal from, a boon to the Cleveland startup scene, and I hope you all enjoy our conversation!
