We're excited to announce a new Founder+Co event series called "Founders Roast Q&A" being held at the WeWork we held the last investor pitching event at the WeWork @ 200 Portland St. in Boston!
This new event series is centered around experienced founders in the Boston area that are making big impacts. The founder will be "roasted" about their experience of starting and growing a startup and what they've learned along the way. The audience will also have the opportunity to ask any questions they have to the Founder. This new series is meant to inspire, lend perspective, be insightful and to learn about the successes and failures of being a founder.
For this event, we're featuring Sean McGrail, the Co-Founder of Paint Nite and Angel Investor @ Golden Seeds.
In 2012 and with only $7,000 he helped co-found Paint Nite (now Yaymaker) with Daniel Hermann in the growing and popular Paint and Sip industry. But instead of franchising, they had a different idea. They empowered local artists to host their Paint Nite events at bars and restaurants, eliminating large startup fees and allowing all parties to profit from this collaboration. It was a win-win formula for everyone involved and helped them become an international hit.
In 2016, Paint Nite was No. 2 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. With numerous other accolades under their belt, Paint Nite was able to rise to success and is a still a growing and expanding business today.
After having a successful exit from Paint Nite, Sean McGrail is now an Angel Investor at Golden Seeds and using his experience and perspective from Paint Nite to help other founders succeed!
