If you’re looking for an excellent case study on tech startup founders, Chris Bullock has all the ingredients: A drive to answer interesting questions, an eye for data, identification of a target user base, an openness to communication, discovery of a problem that needs solving, adaptability, and a plan for growth.
It was all of these elements that led to the creation of his startup, ClearGov, which gathers budget and other data on local governments and presents them in an easy-to-read graphical format. ClearGov also offers local governments the advanced tools they need to record and share their budgets.
In this edition of Founders Journey, Chris tells the story of how his startup evolved from a simple question, how he gained his first customers, and later acquired funding.
