In this episode of The Growth Hub podcast, host Edward Ford sits down with Eoghan McCabe, Chairman & Co-Founder at Intercom, to discuss leadership lessons from founding & scaling Intercom into a billion dollar company.

Eoghan founded Intercom in a Dublin coffee shop with three friends and went from CEO of a four-person startup to CEO of an almost 700-person Silicon Valley unicorn.
