“As a technical founder solving his own problem, I came to Propel thinking I knew exactly what to build, and that to build a successful company, I just needed to start coding. Working with Propel helped me not only reframe that mindset, but also realize that what I actually needed to build was a customer-first organization. My coaches worked closely with me and helped me develop this new skill. They kept me accountable, and always curated the experience to what I needed as a founder.”
