As more and more startup darlings and unicorns flirt with going public or take the opportunity to IPO, earnings calls are coming back into vogue. During the dotcom days, tuning into these sorts of things took all sorts of effort. Tracking down numbers. Tuning in at the right time. Finding the corresponding Webinar. It was a hassle.
But times have changed. We have the technology. We can fix this. That’s why Portland developer and serial entrepreneur Justin Thiele carved out a side project to do just that.
Introducing Earnings Calls.
So, how could it be that listening to earnings calls was so annoying? I needed to find each company’s Investor Relations website and then spend 45 minutes listening to their call on crappy computer speakers? I hated that and rarely did it. I wanted to listen to the calls during my commute to work, while walking the dog, and while grocery shopping just like I did with podcasts and most other media.
So, being somebody that loves to build websites/software, I set out to solve my problem. I hope you find it useful, too. It’s as much for you as it is for me.
If you’re a founder who dreams of taking a company public, simply curious about the way public companies work, or anywhere in between, this is a great way to get up to speed.
