Of course. You folks have come a long way in a short amount of time. Nice shot w/ Spiegel too :)
Thanks for sharing, Ben! We’ve been having a lot of fun building this. Excited to finally get it out into the world.
When I was 18, all I wanted to do was work on my car.
Finding 30-60 minutes during the workday is so tough. Would love to see a video demo though at some point. If they ever do a video please post it on the bit! Fwiw - Coming at this from the perspective of how to evolve from spreadsheets that work :) https://benmilne.com/2019/10/05/a-simple-okr-template/
Hi Ben. My name is Abby, I’m one of the co-founders of Elate. I’d be happy to find a time to talk and show you a brief demo of our platform. We will send you a message via linkedin and we can connect on times that work best.
There isn’t one right now. Happy to put you in touch with the founders for a quick demo.
Don’t know the answer but I will say that the first class that you take on coding can make or break interest for a student.
When I took a coding class in high school, the teacher was awful at it. He was trying his best but I made up my mind that I won’t touch it again. It wasn’t until my curiosity to work on side projects that brought me back to code and I just started learning on my own on the internet.
Looks super interesting. Any chance you know of a place they have a demo online or a video that shows the software without signing up? Super curious how this works.
Such a wonderful thing for the midwest ecosystem.
Can’t stand being in the suburbs of a mid-sized city with your in-laws for the holidays? Well get out of the house and source a deal!
Austin tag has been added :)
I don’t, unfortunately! I know they’ve had a couple exits over the past few years, but I think there’s also been an increasing startup ecosystem excitement in Cincy, Louisville, and southern OH, southern IN, and northern KY broadly, which I think is getting more public money interested in investing in the local ecosystem.
Looks like it! Do you happen to know if a early good outcome is what is driving the fund size up?
They’re a good bunch — a public-private group. This will be their largest fund to date by $20M+. It’ll be really good for the southern OH ecosystem.
I had no idea how active these folks were - https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/cincytech
I heard about DeltaV during the talk on apprenticeships at the Iowa Tech Summit. It’s a program I’d love to learn more about!
Just had a listen. Good interview; thanks for sharing, Mike.
I will be there but I’m already in Fargo. Steve Brockshus is speaking…
Let me know details and I’d love to show you around our community!
You are absolutely right Ben. The Midwest has a long ways to go to catch up
