Feedback Loops - So how do we know if what we’re doing at FounderSoup works? Simple.
We know the importance of iteration, of testing, keeping features that deliver value, and ditching those that don’t. So whether it’s relationship building, event planning, or web architecture, we structure our processes as some sort of feedback loop, which helps us continue to develop and improve the awesome things we do, and calls our attention to the things we should discontinue.
For example, our event series is built in stages, and at each stage, after a founder enters, one of three things can happen. If our team thinks she’s ready, she can progress forward to the next stage. If she’s not quite there, we’ll provide her with more resources to help get her to where she needs to be, then feed her back into the process. Or, if we find out she’s not a fit for the network (i.e., she’s an a**hole), we politely ask her to leave and suggest resources that may be a better fit.
Trust us, this type of system, in varying permutations, is present in everything we do, and it’s the ladle that stirs and serves up the secret sauce (or should we say, soup).
