Following is an edited transcript of Business Solutions president Jim Roddy’s interview with HomeZada cofounder John Bodrozic.

Roddy:  Hello and welcome to this Business Solutions podcast. I’m Jim Roddy the president of Business Solutions. Thank you for joining us.

As always, we’re here to provide actionable information on how VARs and ISVs can sell more products, penetrate thriving vertical markets, and improve their business operations.

Our guest today is John Bodrozic. He’s the cofounder of software developer HomeZada and, prior to that, was the president of software company Meridian Systems. HomeZada is a homeowner information management solution for the real estate, home builder, insurance, and service provider industries.

John will be one of the featured panelists at the ISV IQ Live! conference, Feb. 24, in Santa Ana, CA. Both today and at the ISV IQ Live! conference, John will discuss best practices for software developer companies raising capital.  

My first question is, let’s start with HomeZada. They raised $2.1 million in October 2014, through several sources including venture capitalists [VCs] and angel investors. Up until that point, you’ve bootstrapped everything. If you had to do it all over again, would you follow the same path or what would you change?
