We’re very fond at Joyn of saying that our people are our greatest asset, and we have worked thoughtfully to create a culture where every team member can succeed and feel supported. That’s because we believe our team is the keystone to our current and future growth.
In March, our co-founder and COO Callie Thomas participated in an InsurTech Hartford panel discussing growth strategies in the insurtech industry. As many companies have seen a slowdown after the recent boom in insurtech investments, they are now looking to continue moving forward with a strong strategy for sustainable growth—further complicated by an uncertain economy.
Reflecting on the event, Thomas said, “While all of my fellow panelists had amazing and insightful things to share, for me the most important piece of a growth strategy is having the right people in place. This applies whether you’re just getting off the ground as a startup or whether you’ve become established with a strong book of business.”
“In order to have any venture succeed, you have to have a team that is aligned and working together toward the same goal,” Thomas continued. “Furthermore, they have to have the same mindset about the cash flow and the dollars that are available to spend.”
Not only have we learned how important having the right team in place is during our first (nearly) two years in business, but your team is also incredibly important when you’re in an active fundraising phase. When potential investors are scrutinizing every detail of your company, having the right people at all levels can demonstrate that you are primed for success and a worthwhile investment.
“I was proud to represent our stellar team and sing their praises before a wide swath of industry professionals. They have truly been instrumental in getting Joyn to where it is today”, Thomas said.
