January Dreaming: A Note from Koombea CEO

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

When I think about all the startups that we have worked with, some with powerful success and others that hybrid into something else, I often think that tenacity and faith are more related to success than execution. Sure, certain things like scaling and processes require hard effort, but I have also seen really amazing things spur from tiny little ideas and a lot of faith.

This month we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his tenacity to have faith in a different future of the United States. His public and political work are legends carried on by the country as a whole. I admire those who persevere despite knowing all the answers. In many ways, this is what we do at Koombea: we help people with ideas and walk them through the whole process from beginning to end, and design technology products around it. We believe in “Dreams” here at Koombea and do everything we can to empower our clients.

We’re also flattered that this month Forbes took a special notice of our VP of Product Marketing, Ellie Cachette, to explore the conversations around outsourcing. We have been working hard with the ladies at Women2.0 and Springboard Enterprises for some very exciting projects coming out later this quarter which we can’t wait to announce.

There is a lot of excitement going on and increased interested in product building, which is why we have been working hard to be more reachable for information. One of our new programs that launched in November is related to “Minimum Viable Product” and has its own MVP Page for people to upload their docs and ideas for quick information related to scoping, or just about anything that could help their project. We started publishing various guides on How to Pick Vendors or how to reach an MVP as a non-technical founder. Starting tomorrow we will be having monthly Webinars on various topics. If you had any interest on How to Build an MVP, there’s still time to sign up.

It can be hard to remember now, but six years ago Koombea was only something of a dream, a side project that I felt deeply interested in so I cannot help it but get excited about other’s dreams and empowering other founders to make their dream come true. At Koombea we are more than a development partner but dream-partners. We’re the ultimate believers in dreams and love to help anyone in any way that we can.
