The Speaking of Success program features Chicago-based technology companies that have achieved remarkable revenue success and transformed their markets in the process. Join us as we highlight the story of 37signals featuring Jason Fried.
Jason Fried is the co-founder and President of 37signals, a privately- held Chicago-based company committed to building the best web-based tools possible with the least number of features necessary.
37signals’ unconventional approach to business (don’t hire a PR firm, don’t spend money on marketing, don’t have meetings, don’t work together in the same physical space, etc.) brings a fresh new perspective on how to be an entrepreneur and build a successful business today.
37signals’ products include Basecamp, Highrise, Backpack, Campfire, Ta- da List, and Writeboard. 37signals also developed and open-sourced the Ruby on Rails programming framework. 37signals’ products do less than the competition — intentionally.
Jason believes there’s real value and beauty in the basics. Elegance, respect for people’s desire to simply get stuff done, and honest ease of use are the hallmarks of 37signals products.
