“Being able to identify myself fully as an entrepreneur, transitioning from working in corporate America, has really helped because I fully embrace who I am now as an entrepreneur. That has helped me become a better CEO to build this company. Monica and the whole leadership team at Sprocket has been very helpful in building meaningful connections when we moved here. Our very first headquarters is located at Sprocket, so feeling that sense of community here really help us put our heads down and fully work on expanding the company.”
