#60 - Pivoting to success: Pamela Valdés, Beek

Listen On

About 6 years ago, Pamela Valdés was faced with an important choice between a full scholarship for university in the US or dropping out to get her business off the ground. As you may have guessed, the latter won.

That was the birth of Beek, a startup created to be the top audio platform in Latin America.

Originally from Mexico, Pamela was part of YC in 2017 and got investments from VC firms like Greylock and Accel. Outside of work, Pamela enjoys surfing and, of course, listening to audiobooks. Over 50 a year.

In this episode, Pamela shares:

  • How Beek pivoted and evolved along the journey
  • The importance of managing herself as the company grows
  • Her unique story of getting into YC
  • And some special book recommendations
