On Growth, Hiring and Learning New Things.
Our CEO and fearless leader Josh Levy recent sat down with MeetAdvisors for a video interview covering a number of topics from BeenVerified’s vast range of customers, how he’s built the BeenVerified team and going from a serial tech entrepreneur in high school to the CEO of one of America’s fastest growing companies.

Below are some abbreviated excerpts taken from the interview:
On BeenVerified’s mission:
“We built BeenVerified to help people discover, understand and use public data…we started the company with the simple goal of providing more information about the people you interact with online.”
On BeenVerified’s customers:
“There are people who are looking up potential dates, moms who want to know who just moved into the neighborhood, all the way to people who are searching their own identities and want to know what data is out there about themselves.”
“We’re learning every day. We’re always amazed at what we know today that we didn’t know two years ago. What I think is awesome is, ‘what am I going to know in a year or two that I don’t know today?’ That excites me.”
Advice to budding entrepreneurs:
“Two pieces of advice. One: don’t stop. You have to take that first step, you have to start…the other is don’t take no for an answer and always be inquisitive about why people are doing things and questioning your own process and practices.”
“We want people who are hungry and want to learn. Secondly, we want people who will do what they say they’ll do. We want to trust that if you say you’re going to do something, you’ll do it and it’s going to be great and we’ll keep moving.”
