Recently our CEO sat down with famed podcast host Omer Khan to talk about growing EssayJack Inc. reasonably, responsibly, and organically. Our leaders' philosophy has always been to create something of real value for English language learners and educators. Critical thinking and writing is core to their philosophies, and they believe that if the world was equipped with the skills that they want to teach, then we would all be the better for it for being able to critically engage and analyse the world around us. Often, though, in tech start up worlds, there is great pressure to grow fast and furiously on the back of big investment from strangers whose philosophies might be very different. So what did our founders do?
They made sure to take a lot of the risk of building the EssayJack platform onto their own shoulders first. They built and tested, built and tested, and built and tested some more. They've worked with some of the best schools, colleges, and universities in the world, and they've partnered with some of the most credible educational organisations in the world. They paid for things through revenues and their life savings.
They took the risk. They worked for free. They poured their expertise and passion into EssayJack.
And if you want to start a business, you can too.
Dr. Lindy Ledohowski sat down with Omer Khan to give him all the juicy details of what the journey has been like.
