    The Founder Issue

    For the Oct/Nov issue of BuildBetter Magazine, we conducted 13 interviews with founders and co-founders who began their careers as developers and made the leap to start their own companies. From my vantage point (i.e. the best seat in the house), the stories we heard across the complete developer to founder cycle and all its stages were amazing. We spoke with a few developers just starting their entrepreneurship journey, a few in growth mode, several leading the organizations they’d always dreamed about, and one who left to start it all again.
