How a Founder Developed an Individual Communication Startup in the Light of Epidemic Diseases – TechCrunch
When Ashley Sumner designed and launched Quit, it meant that digital social networking was the answer, preferring authentic personal interactions between people who didn’t necessarily know each other first. This app would be perfect for individual conversations with members and informal meetings in their own homes – but when COVID-19 arrived, the basics of the model changed dramatically.
After first experimenting with zoom-driven virtual video mapping as an alternative, Quit instead decided to build an audio platform that communicated real-time at the wellness center. It seems like it has a lot in common with other audio networking startups, but unlike Bezier Clubhouse or many of its competitors, Quit has built a very different one thanks to its patience and intent. The kind community is carefully crafted.
Ashley spoke to us this week about finding a big change, while maintaining the core mission that Quit has been focused on from the beginning. She also tells us all about her own way of being a founder and leader, which is unique and refreshing.
We loved our time chatting with Ashley, and we hope you’ll love hearing about it.
