Building software is difficult and building software that scales and that your users love is very difficult.

Today my guest is Rupert Taylor Price who is someone that I have come to know quite well since moving to Australia and someone that is so impressive it’s hard to keep up.
His story is great and we’ll learn more about it but here are some highlights:
First job at 12 years old in a warehouse in the UK.
He then did an honours degree in physics before working in the recruitment world where he learned some valuable lessons for his future career.
At 23 he Started Hivetec, a SaaS platform that delivers flexible software for employment care and support services in Australia.
This business grew to around $5m in revenue with extremely impressive margins.
He then started Vault Cloud at 29 years old a secure cloud solution for governments and critical industries.
Rupert raised a staggering $350m of committed capital for Vault cloud which has got to be one of the biggest raises in Aussie history for such an early-stage startup.
When he is not totally killing it in business he is flying his plane, sailing a boat somewhere or running a marathon.
Rupert humility is quite staggering, and it blows my mind that from time to time he asks me for my opinion on something which seems nuts but I suspect this is why he is so far ahead because he is open to learning from anyone about whatever he needs to learn about.
Rupert, welcome, it’s great to have you on the show.
