Welcome to 2023 with our first podcast. Join us as we speak to our first guest from the United States, who is expanding his startup to India. Amjad was born in Jordan, where he grew up with a computer long before others had it. Like any emerging market, his parents wanted him to get a good education. Instead, he became a hacker who built Replit as a side project while working at Yahoo. In 6 years, Replit went from a side project to a company. Today it supports 17M+ developers and is on its way to being a developer unicorn
Replit is a browser-based integrated development environment for cross-platform collaborative coding available worldwide. Replit raised from YC after failing thrice to get there. Replit has raised $100M from investors such as Coatue, a16z and YCombinator.
