Team Story, Part 1: The Early Days of Apcera

I’ve worked long enough to know that I don’t know everything and there are people out there who are way better at some things than I’ll ever be. The trick to building the right startup team is this: Surround yourself with passionate people who are far better than you at what they do. Then trust and empower them to do what they do best. This is easier said than done of course.

A Very Good Year

First we had an idea. Then we got an office. Now we have a product and our first customers. It’s been a tremendous year for Apcera and I couldn’t be more proud of everyone here. It’s incredibly rewarding to see our Apcera family grow from 9 this time last year to 17 today. Welcome to our newest member, Oleg Shaldybin!

Kicking off the holidays, Apcera style:
