Startup Video Favourite: Alexis Ohanian – Making Something People Love

It’s crazy but I’ve shared this video in around 6 private conversations with fellow startup folk, so I figured I’d share it on my blog too, you know… for science.

Every now and again, we get stuck in the cycles of building functionality, testing user-flows and marketing like mad-med (or women). When I find myself stuck in one of these cycles I like to step back and remind myself of something I may be missing from the big picture.

Hey, I'm Hector 👋

I’m a flex workspace technologist – which is just a geeky way of saying that I get to work with awesome people & tech to support, run, market & connect thousands of flexible workspaces around the world. 

I’m currently the co-founder of and curate This Week In Coworking

Alongside other geeky resources and projects, I also founded and grew that global network to support 700+ communities. Learn more about me and my work here.

In my blog and on stage I share my thoughts, observations, and undercurrent trends at the intersection of workspaces and technology. 

Would you like my blog updates via email?
