Bootstrap vs VC, Imposter Syndrome, and Building Culture – Q&A with Jason Cohen

No comments

Jason Cohen, Founder, WPEngine

For his 4th company, Jason Cohen wanted a different journey. Seeing the potential of WPEngine after 2 years of bootstrapping, for the first time Jason took funding. For the first time, Jason decided he would not be the CEO of a company he founded.

We had a fascinating Hangout with Jason last week, which you can watch below. All manner of topics were covered, including:

  • Why Jason decided that WPEngine would raise money
  • The role of mentoring in overcoming impostor syndrome
  • Practical tips on how WPEngine built its great organisational culture
