We use AWS. The cloud is a game-changer but you probably already know that.
A favorite thought comes from the book Think Like a Rocket Scientist: Simple Strategies You Can use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life in the chapter Flying In the Face of Uncertainty:
The path, as the mystic poet Rumi writes, won’t appear until you start walking.
The secret is to start walking before you see a clear path.
Start walking, even though there will be stuck wheels, broken drills, and exploding oxygen tanks ahead.
Start walking because you can learn to walk backward if your wheel gets stuck or you can use duct tape to block catastrophe.
Start walking, and as you become accustomed to walking, watch your fear of dark places disappear.
Speed matters. Rapid development, prototypes, MVPs.

We bring a wealth of experience as founders, investors, tech and business operations.
We are located in the Seattle, Washington, USA area.
