Each Wednesday, the Soaring Startup Circle hosts a different founder, CEO, or influential individual from the startup atmosphere, giving the teams the opportunity to learn from people who have a wealth of knowledge and experiences to share. The SSC welcomed its first two co-founders, Alex LoVerde & Brett Beaulieu-Jones of Wymsee, to talk to this summer's teams at Jebbit.
Alex and Brett (both BC '11) shared the story of Wymsee and how the company's product, Sync on Set, became a tool used on a variety of television shows and movies. Hollywood's best creatives use Sync on Set. Clients range from The Wolf of Wall Street and Spy to Game of Thrones and Suits.
Sharing everything from their early-days' experience at TechStars in Boston to the tools (Slack & Trello) they use to stay in touch with their bicoastal team, the two disruptors of Hollywood provided the teams with a range of takeaways. The duo spoke of the value of having a meaningful board of advisors, how to handle and incorporate customer feedback into your product, and the importance of strategic growth.
The SSC thanks Alex & Brett for taking time to meet with the teams and for kicking off a summer of inspiring Wednesday night sessions with leaders across a myriad of industries.
