How & When To Finish Big | Brian & Eric Dosal | BoS USA 2019

Brian & Eric Dosal // Co-Founders, BrightGauge

Eric (the money guy) & Brian (the product guy) Dosal share their experience of starting, scaling and ultimately selling BrightGauge, their self-funded, 35 employee SaaS business back in 2019. They share an honest and open account of why they decided to sell while it was still very profitable and experiencing rapid (50% year-on-year) growth.

They share the lessons learned in starting a company in San Francisco and then moving it back to their hometown, Miami, FL and the reasons why they took the decision to sell the company. They were not VC funded and had no pressure to sell. Even with a great culture, great team, great everything, it still could be a great idea to sell. AFTER selling, there are still things to do but it’s OK to take a break and/or start a new project.

Hear their takeaways from the experience, and learn how and why to finish big and leave on top.
