When Clara de Soto’s first app company, Killswitch, was shut down by Facebook after going viral in 110 countries, it was a “really big blow,” but she didn’t take it sitting down. She and her colleagues got to work. “We had to put on our hustle pants…and we networked our butts off until we got in touch actually directly with Sheryl Sandberg,” she said while chatting for this week’s episode of The Credentialed podcast.

De Soto’s latest enterprise is still an early startup, though you wouldn’t know it to look at its client list, which includes firms like Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Samsung and Hilton, all of which have employed its chatbot technology to communicate better with consumers.
