THE COMPANY A next generation events marketing platform.
WHAT A RUN
There’s no raining on this parade. RainFocus is an events marketing company that is the first of its kind. In fact, its cutting edge technology is used at hundreds of events a year (yes, even in the year of COVID) and trusted by giants like Adobe, Cisco, Oracle and Trimble.
“Focus first on building and enabling a great team. Great product and customers will follow.”
AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT
“Accepting a cold-call from our soon-to-be investment partner, JMI. (We almost never take those calls.)”
“A few years ago we were presented a great opportunity, but it would require a major product pivot. It took us several years to work through it, but we ended up with a more complete and robust product in the end.”
Make Your Own Luck
“By doing really well at the boring stuff of growing a business — business processes, internal communications, training, etc.”
Fortune Cookie Forecast
“Current disruptions that are out of your control will melt away.”
