Building a startup can be both challenging and exhilarating, often at the same time. At PeerStreet, we are changing the way people can invest in real estate mortgages, which presents plenty of obstacles and rewards for our team. Thankfully, we have attracted talented and passionate people who work hard every day to build this business. Our founders, Brew Johnson, Brett Crosby and Alex Perelman, all have unique experience working for and launching successful startups.

Recently, Noah Kagan, an influencer covering startups and entrepreneurs, interviewed Brett about how his former company, Urchin Software Corporation, was acquired by Google. He shares some of his insights on Noah’s newly published video, Real Business Stories: The Unlikely Origin Story of Google Analytics. In the episode, Brett gives Noah a tour of PeerStreet’s office space, so watch the video to get a sneak peek of where our daily operations happen.

Brett also recently shared several lessons and experiences for the Xoogler (ex-Googler) network. He talks extensively about PeerStreet and shares some of the worst and best highlights of his career.
