Let’s start with a big admission: I’ve neglected you… purposefully. When we launched the ‘Been There, Done That’ series, I promised you regular insights into our business — and then I pulled the plug. It was a tough decision.

In my first #BeenThere post I gave you a real time look at the most difficult decision I’ve had to make as a Startup CEO. I shared it while it was very fresh — so much so that we were still experiencing the aftershocks as a team. The response was intense. Many of you reached […]

According to the Wall Street Journal, NYC office space rents have increased an average of 6% over the last 12 months. With […]
Does this sound like you? You’re part of an up-and-coming company in the midst of building out a great product or service. The team has set up shop in an awesome coworking like WeWork or Green Desk, to jump start the business and take advantage of the great networking and collaborative benefits that come with rubbing […]
