Interested in software startups?
Hopefully, like me, you're here because you're interested in startups -- more specifically, software startups. Welcome friend.
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 worldwide.
2) I've angel invested in over 80+ startups including Okta, Dropbox, WPEngine, Buffer, CoinBase, and a bunch of others.
So why OnStartups?
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've subscribed to anyways, what harm is one more?
Enjoy the site and thanks for visiting.
