Sabba is the co-founder of Veed.io, an online video editing platform that has grown to over $1.7m ARR. When I first met Sabba, Veed was just a small product that wasn't generating any revenue. Since then Sabba and his co-founder Tim have grown the platform rapidly, adding new team members, thousands of new users, making a profitable bootstrapped business.
