The logistics of running a mastermind group takes away from a facilitator's ability to focus on results.
1Groups require too many disparate technologies to manage. Tending to the logistics of running a group can inhibit the overall benefits.
2Keeping the meetings on track is difficult. Without structure, meetings can quickly devolve into small talk.
3Accountability within a group is dependent on a member willing to call out others.
4Without any system of record great ideas and feedback can get lost.
An app that can manage everything in one place while improving results for members.
An app that combines everything in one place: group management, scheduling, video conferencing, agendas with timers, goals, and chat.
Timers that help manage the meeting, keeping members on track so everyone gets equal time and benefit.
Goal tracking and completion rates enhance accountability improving outcomes.
Everything in one place creates an invaluable system of record that is always there.
In 2016 Sebastian Broways and Jeff Hopp found themselves in a Mastermind Group together. After adding yet another row in their goal tracking spreadsheet, they thought, "There has to be a better solution. If there isn't one, we should build it."
Thus began the pursuit of building a platform for managing better masterminds.
After conducting 100s of user interviews, they began to realize a few key metrics that influenced the direction of the product. Primarily, that paid groups with a format and strong meeting structure are the stickiest and drive the greatest results. So the roadmap was adjusted to accommodate professional facilitators and address their key pain points.
