Daniel Ahmadizadeh is the CEO of PersistIQ, a company that offers digital tools for sales and customer outreach.
But he’s also an entrepreneur who saw shifting needs onset by the COVID-19 outbreak, so he went back to the drawing board and came up with three initiatives to meet market demand.
What did he come up with? An app for dating while in quarantine, a platform to connect job seekers in sales with work, and a set of tools specifically geared for supporting struggling small businesses. And he doesn’t plan on stopping there.
“Within 14 days — so by March 22 — of launching the app to our friends, it was on the front page of The Wall Street Journal,” Ahmadizadeh told Business Insider about his dating app, “Quarantine Together.” “It was an insane ride.”
He recommended other entrepreneurs look at what society needs right now to get a successful product on the market during the pandemic and shared just how he did it — three times.
