Grover and I started this company expecting to build this product on our own. As a technical growth guy and talented UI/UX phenom, building a SaaS product for the midmarket from A to Z was our biggest risk, and one I was keen to reduce while also creating more value for the company by ensuring that whichever talent we bring on is someone truly additive to the culture we want to create.
Couldn't have come across anyone better than Mike, who I've known for several years. Mike and I worked on Spoil and we're excited to be able to work together again. To say Mike fills our gap is a big understatement. He's one of the few people I'd immediately qualify to be a cofounder with, so I'm really excited the three of us are embarking on this journey together.
What's more, Mike convinced a colleague, JP, to jump on board and help us out. JP immediately took to our mission and just like that, our company headcount has doubled. Of course, the pie has been sliced, but if I've learned one thing over the course of my career in entrepreneurship, it's that people is everything.
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.
