Reasons Zoom grew so big, so fast ($331 mil revenue last year and profitable)

-- It spent 2 years focused on product
-- It was architected to give Zoom more UX control
-- It could work at 40% packet loss
-- It was free for 40 mins, then $9.99 per user

1/ We Pivoted a few yrs ago. This is the story- mostly my feelings. It has never been told publicly.

This will be rambly and represents the chaos in my head at the time. There is [hopefully] no advice here. I don’t know if we did it right.
If you're a startup and you're not even growing 2X per year, and you're wondering if you're failing... yeah, you probably are.

The interesting thing is the vast majority of those who are in that situation don't ask that question, and instead write VERY LONG investor updates.

The physical location of where you start your business doesn’t matter anymore.

Not because of remote work.

Because of the infinite access to information and people that the Internet has unlocked.

This is why single person sustainable companies can exist today.

The Internet 🙏

So often, the summation of a 30-60 minute call could be achieved with a 2-3 line email.

"I want you to intro me to X person"
"I want a job"
"I want you to buy X company for Y"

It's insane to think about how many eons of productivity are wasted dancing around things. Just ask!
