Hey everyone! 👋
I'm Pramod, one of the Co-founders of Threado. Last week, we asked a question - what is the one immediate challenge that you are facing in your community that you need help with? We received pretty interesting responses to it. In case you missed it, you can share your views here.
In a rather amusing conversation this week, a community manager told us about all the stereotypes related to their job title. From expecting them to be available all the time to ask them what their job actually is - they have heard it all. Do you have any such anecdotes to share? Reply to this email and we will make a meme out of it! With due credits, of course.😇
Before we start, in case you received this email in your promotions tab, do move it to your Primary tab. It only takes 5 seconds and will help you earn good karma points. 🤗 We also have an interesting community drop brewing for you for December. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn.
This is the story of a bunch of students at MIT. Peter Reinhardt, Calvin French-Owen and Ilya Volodarsky took “The Founder’s Journey” - a class at MIT where they invited successful startup founders to interact with the students and talk about the learnings from their journey.
But it didn't start quite this way. A successful Y-Combinator application followed by failures and multiple pivots led Segment to finally find its product-market fit. Segment is now acquired by Twilio in a whopping $3.2B deal! Today 20K+ businesses use Segment's software and APIs to collect, clean, and activate their customer data.
But how did they get here? What did the initial days look like? Read this week's case study as we take a deep dive into the Segment's approach to community-driven growth.
