What it takes to take on Google – the story behind Aussie mediatech Oovvuu.

Is Oovvuu journalism’s white knight? When the industry started to die Oovvuu founder Ricky Sutton, invented a lifeline - a tech platform with a market of 1 billion news consumers.

But it was four and half years of no pay before a hefty funding round fuelled Oovvuu’s growth to the next level and then the next. Now, in hyper-growth phase, Oovvuu is taking on Google and Facebook.

Tune in today to hear how a former journo is scaling his mediatech business globally, tips on managing a hyper-growth phase, and what is exciting Ricky Sutton in the business world today.
