📊 Mixpanel

For all the people building B2B companies out there

Hello Folks 👋,

I am taking this week off to get a much needed break from my screen after being cooped up in my tiny apartment (more like room) for the past 18 months.


Instead of the usual First 1000 issue, I am (re)sharing the Mixpanel story straight from Suhail’s (Cofounder & Chairman of the company) Twitter thread. In this thread he shares his learnings from getting the very first 100 Mixpanel customers.

For those of you who don’t know Mixpanel, it is an analytics company that empowers anyone without a data science background to cut, slice and visualize their product’s data in all sorts of interesting ways.

Get snacking on this until I am back from my mini-vacation next week ;)

Justin.tv. Sal Khan grinded as he narrated & taught the lessons for Khan Academy. Elon went toe-to-toe with rocket scientists publicly before he was one.
