Anyone who has started their own venture knows there are many false dawns, things are done wrong, promises are made & broken, but everything/day is a learning process.
It would be safe to say that eventhough there is still a mountain 10 times the size of Everest to climb, professionally this has been the most intense learning experience that one could hope for. It is said time and again at startup events that
Failing, is failing to start…
That is as true a statement you will ever hear in your professional career.
Startups as most things in live can be looked at as a puzzle where you are charged with finding all the pieces that fit. Confidently we can say that we have found another massive piece of the OPD puzzle and it was Jakub Strama shaped. The breath of fresh air that he has brought to the team has been fantastic!
To be honest, though there were a lot of things going on behind the scene, One Player Down was in somewhat of a holding pattern as the adjustments to the “other” founder roles (fatherhood) that both Matthias and Nick were experiencing were beginning to take their toll. Now with Jakub, fresh perspectives and more hands on deck we are all able to consentrate on what we do best or can learn quickest.
This means there will be more updates, changes etc to the platform soon. Of course we are working though the fantastic amount of feedback we have gotten with a priority list but we are always up for more feedback. Just send the feedback/feature requests to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work it into future releases.
