03 May UC Launch
Yesterday, I had a chance to share some thoughts on my founder experience with Accompany with the latest LAUNCH Cohort.
We covered a lot of ground over 40 minutes, centered around 5 key areas:
1. A Particular Set of Skills
Skills and insights picked up along the way before becoming a startup founder that were helpful in the journey and can be learned through other means.
2. Early Days at Accompany
Foundational things we set in place that served us well in our 5 years of Accompany.
3. Cornfield Years
Thoughts on raising the war chest and keeping the team motivated while seeking out product/market fit.
4. Refocusing on Enterprise
Our experience moving the measure of success from individual user decisions to the aggregate impact based on C-Suite objectives.
5. Exit & Beyond
Thoughts on generating inbound interest for your business and our experience with the exit.

Few of my recently completed pieces. Red: finished with a high-gloss varnish. Love how it relects light. White: started out much darker; scraped off ~1/2 & re-applied the blue over fresh white. Varnish created interesting 3D rippling. Blue: really happy w/ the soundwave effect. pic.twitter.com/0hfatJoGl0
