Welcome to the Season 5 of Outliers Podcast,
It means a lot to see you here, and have you stay with me over the 100 episodes and 3 years, on this journey of deep conversations.
I often get asked about how we select the guests on Outliers.
What makes an outlier?
Are they all superhuman?
Perhaps not everyone, but today’s guest on Outliers is a SuperHuman for sure.
Meet Rahul Vohra, the founder and CEO of Superhuman, an app with the mission to give you the world’s fastest email service.
There have been questions about how long the emails will survive. But the death of email has been highly exaggerated too. They continue to live on, and with them, the service’s inherent inefficiencies continue to linger.
With Superhuman, Rahul is making a massive dent in the email universe.
And on a lighter note, I am not the only one wanting to be “a SuperHuman.”
There are over 250,000 users waiting for an invitation to SuperHuman.
“I think our waitlist is widely misunderstood,” Rahul tells me in this podcast.
“We are doing it because we are obsessed with making you successful with Superhuman and if we believe that the product is not yet ready for the kind of email that you do or how you do it, we simply won’t onboard you.”
Superhuman is solving a mainstream problem that’s already being served by two of the world’s most powerful tech companies–Microsoft and Google. But then, there were over a dozen search engines when Google launched in September 1998, and the mobile phone market wasn’t as lonely when the iPhone launched.
Tune in to this episode of Outliers to learn more about Superhuman’s product journey, and how Rahul is navigating the ongoing pandemic as an entrepreneur.
