Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Atlanta HTML5 about GuildQuality’s path from idea to fast-growing,Â profitable business.Â Thank you to the organizers for inviting me, and especially to Wesley Hales for his great work building this group into one of the strongest tech meetups in Atlanta.
There was a ton of Q&A. Most of the questions touched on pricing strategy, marketing, and company culture, with the latter attracting the most attention. The big interest in discussing that part of my presentation really underscored for me the resonance and importance of culture. It also reminded me of a quote fromÂ David Cummings,Â ”Corporate culture is the only sustainable competitive advantage that is completely within the control of the entrepreneur.”
