Brett Herkt has the hair colour and determination of a Viking. In 2014 he was targeting the top end of town when he pitched to FKA. He has pivoted to SMB since then, changed the branding, gained impressive traction, and he has won lots of fans among FKA investor reps. His current round is massively oversubscribed.
So no sweet-talking of a cat herder could get capacity when even a horned Sheppard who is an early investor may not get all he wants.
All the best to Brett, Kim and the rest of the BoardPro team!

Don’t be a first-mover, be the first one to get it right!Remember: be an early mover, but don’t be a first mover as the lack of competition most likely signifies a lack of genuine customer desire.Interesting little read!
