Last Sunday, it was announced that the service I had created, StickyGram, was acquired by PhotoBox. The official announcement covers the specifics of the deal and the sentiments of the team. These are a few of my own reflections.
For me, the deal marked a positive end to an extraordinary personal journey that started more than two years ago. This was my first real business. I had dabbled with ideas before, but I never had the fortitude or courage to see any of them through. From the start, I made a conscious decision to do this for the learning and not the “exit”. Perhaps that’s what made it different.
