When he told me, I knew that FullContact simply HAD to be involved somehow.
Boxing! Yes, Boxing.
But with Startup Founders, Investors and Tech Executives in the ring, duking it out!
Now, I am all for the personal check-ins and mindfulness, but direct activation of the Lizard Brain and its Fight or Flight instinct at its core? That’s a concept I could get behind!
And with a name like FullContact, how could we NOT consider being a sponsor?
Especially when all the proceeds were going to charity.
So, one morning, I went to the Corner Boxing Club to meet with the owner, Carrie Barry to discuss a sponsorship.
The negotiation was brief. I threw out a number and Carrie accepted on the spot.
Carrie also offered to bring in my leadership team for a little training, which I gladly accepted.
Coincidentally, my CEO Coach, Jerry Colonna happened to be there that morning as well.
That inspired this little video egging Jerry on to a fight with my friend and investor, Chris Marks.
Which prompted this awesome post by Chris Marks announcing that he was stepping into the ring for Founder Fights.
While I won’t be fighting, I can tell you – promoting fights is a helluva lot of fun!
