founders helping founders

Inc.’s Founders Project began, earlier this year, as a way to commemorate our 40th anniversary. But as you can tell from this issue, it has grown into something much bigger—into a kind of mission. By the end of the year, we will have matched 40 seasoned entrepreneurs with the founders of 40 companies that find themselves at a crossroads. One of our Founders Project mentors is on the cover: Tilman Fertitta, the harddriving CEO of Landry’s, owner of the Houston Rockets, and star of CNBC’s Billion Dollar Buyer. You can read his remarkable biography, written by Inc. editoratlarge Bill Saporito, starting on page 26. But be sure to also check out the dialogue he has with his mentee, Megan Eddings of Accel Lifestyle, on page 30. Her company, which makes sweatabsorbing…

in praise of friction

Inside the infrared cedar sauna at Epic Entrepreneur House in San Diego, aspiring startup moguls can strip down to their core assets, generate a little sweat equity, and, finally, focus. At Epic, you see, nearly all distractions (friction, in productivity hackers’ parlance) have been removed. There’s no commute, because this is their home. The living room has standing desks; dry-erase boards line the walls from the kitchen to the family room. Friends come to them, lured by prearranged social events; an in-house chef prepares all meals. At Epic, one can ideate a vision for industry dis-ruption while staying totally undisrupted. It’s enough to make you wonder: If the founders of yore—Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, say—had started their companies here instead of in some stupid garage, what might they have…

fast on her feet

“My wife and I were able to adopt a child because of remote work.”—Darren Murph, senior manager on GitLab’s culture curation team 1 The Fort Washington, Maryland-based entrepreneur entered the competition to raise money for Flavors Culinary Group, the food-startup incubator she hopes will become, in her words, the “WeWork of kitchen spaces.” 2 Awarding a total of $25,000, the contest pitted Bingham against two other founders—of music therapy provider Maine Music & Health and landscape planner Garden in Minutes—in five timed trials of entrepreneurial skill. 3 While big names like WeWork and the Wing have taken co-working spaces prime time, a champion brand has yet to emerge from the kitchen and food incubators servicing the $140 billion specialty foods industry. 4 When Bingham launched her startup, landlords were reluctant to convert their properties…

hot new startups, cool older looks

“I haven’t had to wait in line to go to the women’s bathroom since I got started in tech.”—Ran Ma, co-founder and CEO of smart-sock company Siren, describing perhaps the only advantage to being female in the Silicon Valley boys’ club Like many great startup origin stories, the one for Love Billy!—a New York-based direct-to-consumer clothing brand—begins at a party. It was 2015, there really was a Billy, and Candice Pool Neistat thought it’d be funny to wear a T-shirt emblazoned with his name for his birthday. She found iron-on felt letters just like those her mother used in the 1980s. And a logo for a booming business was born. Love Billy! is far from the only such company going retro when it comes to the crucial task of choosing a font.…
