Connecting people for nightlife and travel.
I tried it the startup way - raised funding for a free app. Grew to 250k users. But we needed millions.
I tried at a big company - going for a huge global launch. That was cut short by covid.
Both times I was aiming for the moon. Both times I didn’t make it. Both times I felt I didn’t have much control over the outcomes.
I now believe there’s a 3rd way. A way I may have more control of: a smaller and more curated community. Building it more slowly, together with the community. More content driven. Sharing what I’m building in public. Generating revenue early on.
So while the mission, the who and the what stays the same, the how of Super Locals will be different this time around.
Taking this approach, I’m currently refining the community platform together with a small number of members. It’s coming together, and will open up to more of you soon.
Now on to this week’s newsletter…
