"There is no delight in owning anything unshared"
This Roman philosopher really had a solid head on his shoulders, and was very down-to-earth. And that’s what we’re all about — bringing back joy to people through sharing, collaboration and trust.
Our vision really resonated this week. Being ever close to launching your startup’s product is a perfect reason for one to reconnect with old friends, and catch-up. We’d be happy to run you through what we’ve been up to, and share our business plan — let us know if you’d like to join us for lunch, coffee or a mojito.
Deliverables this week were a nice mixture of technical wizardry, artistic creations, exciting business planning / strategy, and practical financing approaches. Our team produced everything from illustrations, to innovative sizing of TAM (total addressable market), and to state machines. A great mix of disciplines across deliverables, but also within deliverables (everything is artful, everything is designed, and everything is technically sound).
We’ve also had good response rate to our job postings. We think we’re creating a really exciting and meaningful place to work, and are excited to grow our team (while staying lean). We’re constantly interviewing in search of the gems out there.
Progress was also made in the realms of insurance, billing and offshore development infrastructure. Everything’s been coming together and we’re very relieved that we’ll be able to get coverage, integrate with payment systems, and gain leverage from talented offshore developers in a unique way (some day soon we hope to write a blog post about how to share individual pieces of code in a safe way, while being able to operate the whole site and push back changes to the core code base for review).
