Tier 1, my friends.
I’ve had lots of people ask lately me how much money the founders in JamPad have cumulatively raised for the companies they’re working on... and decided to take it upon myself to tally that number.
JP has been around for ~ 1yr. I continue to be proud of what we’re doing for this city. Job well done, founders.
A Final, Very Important Note!
To all you JP founders: there are certain pockets of this ecosystem that have decided to “dislike” us. Some even tell me to my face:
We hope you fail so we can make a meme out of you :)
This is comical (let alone childlike from adults over the age of 40) & has happened to me personally at least 6 times IRL, let alone the hundreds of occurrences behind my back.
Now, why is that you ask? It’s because the world is full of jealousy and envy. Leave them be…. don’t instigate.
Founders: If anyone questions you or your ability to build, do the following:
Look them in the eye
Smile & give yourself a nice chuckle
Tell ‘em we’ll see you around, with grace!
There’s no room in our city for hatred towards some of the most brilliant individuals our city has to offer on the company building front. Phoenix needs to band together towards a central North Star to help make this place what it can be. With that being said, I want all operators that talk down to young founders in this city to remember one thing….
No founders? No ecosystem.
