Why Are You Here?

Hopefully, like me, you're here because you're interested in startups -- more specifically, software startups.

As a professional geek I used to work in a reasonably fun job doing what I liked to do (write code).  Eventually, I got a little frustrated with it all so at the ripe old age of 24, I started my first software company.  It did pretty well.  It got a bunch of awards, attracted a bunch of smart people, reached millions of dollars of sales and was ultimately sold for millions of more dollars to a much larger technology company.

Since then, I've remained a "startup guy. 

1) Co-founded HubSpot in 2006.  HubSpot is now a public company [NYSE:HUBS] with over 3,000 employees world-wide.

2) I've angel-invested in over 70 startups including Okta,Dropbox, WPEngine, Buffer, CoinBase and a bunch of others.  


So what?

During this entire process, I figured out that there are others out there that are also fascinated with startups and what it takes to make them succeed.  So, I started this blog.  So basically, this site is for and about software startups.

Do me a favor and subscribe to the RSS feed just so I know you're out there.  You already have hundreds of feeds you're subscribed to anyways, what harm is one more?

Enjoy the site and thanks for visiting.
