At the moment, my brain is wrecked. But what I’m not is over doing this—rapid prototyping, startup bootcamp, or working with my particular team. If anything, this showed me more of what is possible when getting together with the right team, motivating each other in the right ways, keeping track that everyone is more or less on the same page, and not stopping until the deadline.
This is why we created What The Founder? Name aside (yes, it’s funny and meta), the point is that more honest conversations need to happen on small teams (startup or not) in order to build the best product possible. These conversations also immensely improve your relationships at work and with the work you do. I know this having only met half my team this weekend. And I know this from having won the Spirit of the Event Award too.
Yes, I may have gotten lucky. But, I think we ultimately just had talented people and damn good karma. We built a product that surfaces issues or rather in a positive light, synchronicities on a team, which hopefully will improve the way we work and build in the near future.
For now—my day job it is. In the future, who knows. All that matters is that we got WTF done, and we loved it. Follow us on Twitter or sign up to keep updated.
