Startup Stories: Notes from Founders

Startups are often defined by their journeys... How they got started... Where they are now... and where they’re going next...

Journals are visual records: places to capture ideas, make notes, or create memories... an analog view into the human story of a digital enterprise.

The result of combining the two is an eclectic, engaging and ultimately very personal way to tell a Startup Story, and the people behind them.
