How is your business innovating and providing something new?
“Our field of cybersecurity is complicated to the untrained eye but resilient to outside threats. Security inside organizations, inherently, gets caught building on old processes with old technology. We built ThirdPartyTrust to improve an inefficient system of collecting and analyzing vendor data with a network based approach unseen in other solutions on the market.”
What do you like most about working for your company?
“What I really enjoy about working here is the team. We’re a small team effectively accomplishing the same goals and at the end of the day, it’s a great feeling to have accomplished what we set out to do. We’re able to work together cohesively and independently to get what we need done that’s best for the team and company.”
When did you first feel successful?
“We first felt successful when our first clients signed on and saw the potential of our team and software.”
What has been the key to your company’s success?
“The leadership has been pushing for simple, achievable goals. With alignment on all teams, we’re able to effectively move the company forward.”
What advice would you give to startups?
“When hiring, hire for honesty, integrity and alignment, less on skillsets. Be patient, great companies take time to build, much more than you anticipate. Be very conscious of your capital spend.”
