" Admittedly, I was skeptical at first. Having a consistent and dedicated meeting every month with CEOs of such different backgrounds and experiences has given me insights and support to work through my day-to-day challenges. And as a first time founder, OTR gave me a peer group that was open and helpful, exposed me to how others run their companies, and provided actionable tools to implement quickly. "

Entrepreneurship is a terrifying, against-all-odds struggle to bring something new and beautiful into the world. With few exceptions, tech investors and press focus too much on the successes and too little on the struggle and our well-being as founders. Off The Record is an important, tangible step in providing a next-generation support OS for entrepreneurs.
What makes OTR unique is that it provides a forum for guidance that's contextual, confidential, and impartial. Investors or family members may have the trust and business context to provide quality advice, but they have inherent biases. The opportunity to work through your biggest challenges with accomplished individuals, no strings attached, is invaluable. Feedback from my peer group has already impacted strategy at SportsRecruits.

I'm a huge believer in CEO groups, and OTR is a wonderful example of this experience done right. It's incredibly helpful to share the challenges and to celebrate the victories with a group of peers who are equally "in the trenches." Whether we're acting as independent board members, or supportive friends, our OTR pod has succeeded at becoming close-knit and indispensable.
