Startup Grind: Jen Randall (Maestro)
...
Come listen to a fire-side interview with Jen Randall, cofounder of Maestro. When Jen Randall is not steadiness at the helm of Maestro or personifying its core values, she is boosting others' performance. Little wonder.

Jen Randall talks to Startup Grind about what that transition was like and where the company may go from here. It's probably fair to say that not everyone is as comfortable with risk as Jen Randall.
"Risk can be really fun," Randall says. "You learn so much about yourself when you are put in a situation that is uncomfortable. You grow and learn who you are."
That positive outlook goes a long way toward understanding a path that has taken Randall from the front of a middle school classroom, to Johnson & Johnson as sales and training manager, to making cold calls from her basement for Maestro, to president of the company.
Maestro, a company that got its start creating learning products for clients, now makes custom software much of which is focused on improving employees performance for Maestro's clients. The company had $3.8 million in sales in 2013 and has 75 clients, including such companies as Facebook, Dannon Yogurt, Johnson & Johnson, Stryker, and Amway.
At a Kalamazoo Startup Grind interview, Randall recently described the company and its rapid growth. Randall was invited to speak as part of the 40Forward program by Google, intended to spotlight the success of female entrepreneurs in the tech sector.
...
In response to his questions, Randall recounted the company's history, described its core values, and next steps.
...
Little and Randall had become family friends after his wife had provided child care for Randall's son.
...
Randall and her family had just built their dream home. Randall had a cushy corporate job and "a really nice lifestyle."
With some prayer, Randall decided to leave South Carolina and work with Little to build a new tech company, though for the first year it meant working without drawing a salary as all revenues went back into the company.
...
"We just did our 117th project for Zimmer (a health-care company that supports orthopaedic surgeons)," Randall says. It's one of a list of clients built by "six months of relentless cold calling."
Maestro has kept its clients through its service, which helps companies understand their needs and the root causes of their problems, so they get the solution that meets their needs, she says.
Little has since sold Bloomfire, moved on to start another company, and Randall is buying out his shares of Maestro.
...
Randall discussed the possibilities with a group of advisors, but decided the company was not ready for such a move during 2013. Stay tuned for developments in 2014.
So what is the advantage that women have when it comes to tech company leadership?
"Women can bring a unique perspective to an industry that has historically been dominated by men, but regardless of whether you wear pants or a skirt, have a vision for what you want to accomplish," Randall says.
