#385 – Startup Series – Jeff Shaw, Underground Cellar - Disrupting E-Commerce Wine Sales Through Gamification

54 minutes

In episode 385, we welcome our guest, Jeff Shaw, founder of Underground Cellar, a new way to discover, buy, and store limited edition wines.

In today’s episode, we’re talking to one of the most passionate, gritty, and determined entrepreneurs around. Jeff begins by explaining where he got the idea to gamify the wine buying process.  He shares how the company works – the process of buying the wine, the upgrade algorithm, and the logistics of storing the wine.

Then we hear how Mark Cuban turned him down multiple times, and leveraged that to get an investment from Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran. We talk about the experience of going through Y Combinator, raising money from Jason Calacanis, and what lies ahead for this fast growing startup.
