Why a Startup Studio?

Why a Startup Studio?

Early in 2013, my brother Josh and I, along with our business partner Mike Benna, exited Strangeloop Networks after its sale to Radware, a Tel Aviv-based application delivery and security company. Stressed and exhausted, we were all ready for a much-needed break. The plan was to take a year off, but sometime around the six-month mark, I started to feel a nagging urge to get back to work.

So, once or twice a week, Josh, Mike, and I would meet up at the Vancouver Convention Centre and take a 90-minute walk around Stanley Park to talk about the things we loved about our last business, what we hated, and what we should do next.
