The #1 reason for companies to fail is founder disagreement. Entrepreneurship is challenging because it has a significant impact on your day-to-day life. Mental challenges such as imposter syndrome, self-doubt, and signs of burnout occur weekly. In a high-stress environment, the founding team must not just get along but genuinely compliment and always respect each other. Success only occurs when the founding team does not quit.
Brian Chesky of Airbnb, when asked how he and his two co-founders Joe and Nathan stuck together through thick and thin. Brian's answer is incredible. First, he begins a story about how successful businesses take luck. Then, he continues to say Airbnb's luck is actually the fact that he met his co-founders, Joe and Nathan. I have the same feeling about getting to work with Matt daily. You are the average of the people you spend the most time with, and Matt has qualities that I hope continue to rub off on me.
Cadi's co-founder, Matt Ahrens, is a founder that demonstrates all the qualities an investor should be seeking in a funded founder. Matt is driven, tough, trustworthy, motivated by the work, not material things, and skilled in problem-solving. Matt is capable of being a world-changing product builder in our society.
Cadi would not be where it is today without Matt. I appreciate and am grateful for our relationship as the founding team. Matt and I have known each other since we were teenagers. Our paths have followed the same trajectory, but we have different ways we approach life. Matt is organized and linear thinking. I thrive more in chaos and Lateral thinking. Matt enjoys being in the background, and I find myself being more assertive from the front. The combination of our two approaches equals a powerful complementary founding team.
As we face the challenges of breaking through, I know that Matt and I are a team that will thrive, survive and ultimately win.
As an investor and potential investor, this is Cadi's most asset. Incredible founders like Matt will be massively successful in life. Cadi was founded in 2016 and has proven the founding team can thrive in any environment. So if you are considering investing, today is a great day. Join Matt and me as we break through in 2023.
Co-Founder and admirer of Matt!
