Sure! I'm a self-taught developer turned founder. My best days are those when I get to dig into a tricky product problem and craft an elegant solution. I spend most of my first decade in the industry helping start and grow Drip (acquired in 2016 by Leadpages) and learning the SaaS ropes from my mentors. Now, I'm back in the founder seat with SavvyCal.
SavvyCal is a scheduling tool for busy people who need to find time to meet with colleagues, customers, partners, etc. Over time, I started to identify a few problems with existing tools that could use innovation: the awkward power dynamics of sending a scheduling link and hesitancy around wrecking your schedule if someone books a suboptimal time. No one was really solving these problems in a compelling way, so I entered the space!
We are primarily positioned for startup founders and executives, but we are beginning to expand into more areas of the organization (like customer success and sales teams). Ultimately, SavvyCal is a pretty "horizontal" tool, which presents a great opportunity to explore different niches and see how we can make SavvyCal a key part of their workflow. For example, we have a number of podcasters using SavvyCal to schedule recording times with guests, and I'm really excited about growing more in this niche.
