sparefoot-logo-200-2This week, We Are Austin Tech shines the spotlight on Chuck Gordon, co-founder of the world’s largest market for self-storage: Sparefoot.
The company, founded in 2008, is a graduate from Capital Factory accelerator and has raised $4.5 million.
Gordon and Mario Feghali founded the company during their senior year at UCLA. Today, SpareFoot has 60 employees.
“The best advice I have for up-and-coming tech entrepreneurs is something that was ingrained very early on in Capitol Factory: fail fast, fail quickly,” Gordon says in the video. “You have to understand that everything you try is not gonna work. And you need to just keep trying stuff until you find what does. We changed around what we were doing all the time at the beginning — we still do all the time.”
