Clowder is a service that you don't know you need until you want some coffee, but the atmosphere is so chaotic at the nearby coffee shop, and the line is out the door.
At this stage, a company's greatest asset is the team. The Clowder team is top-notched. The CEO has all the intangibles needed to take a company to great heights, while the CTO has shown me things that I didn't know could be done with CSS.
The product is flawless. There will scaling pains. But a team led by Christine Miao and Matt Casey is the poised to deal with these pains. The team worked together for a while at McKinsey and there are few more high-pressure environments than Fortune 500 technology consulting. No one is a startup natural and there's no school to teach you how to build a startup. McKinsey Digital could be among the best training wheels out there.
Miao, Casey &Co. have removed real estate from retail. The convenience and flavor of their lattes is habit-forming. This is going to be big.
