Well, the news of my separation from Coupa has begun to circulate.
I imagine anytime a founder leaves a company it’s tough. It certainly was for me. But as Steve Jobs once said, if you wake up too many mornings in a row not feeling passionate about what you are working on, you need to change what you are working on!
I continue to have confidence in Coupa, its product, and its mission. I’m very proud of what the company has accomplished over the past few years. I believe in Coupa’s management team, respect Coupa’s investors, and think the Coupa solution is the best on the market for automating and controlling indirect procurement for the mid-market.
As for what’s next for me, it just may be a very long (think Forrest Gump) bike ride. And after that, we shall see..
