I am Jason Cohen, founder of WP Engine. Ask me Anything!Oct. 28, 2015
I've founded four companies, both bootstrapped and funded, both software and hardware, grew all to more than $1m in revenue, sold two (ITWatchDogs, Smart Bear), helped start local Austin incubator Capital Factory, invested in about two dozen startups, and currently spend all my time as CTO and founder of WP Engine, owning innovation and technology strategy. I've written for eight years at blog.asmartbear.com/, and in fact the popularity of that blog (more than 60,000 RSS subscribers at peak) is how WP Engine got started nearly six years ago!
I wanted to thank MWP for having me for this AMA so I wanted to share a special coupon for the audience in case you want to check out WP Engine. Just use the coupon code “SPEEDUP” to get 20% off your first payment. When you combine that with our normal 2 month discount on annual accounts, you get a year’s worth of service and only pay for 8 months.
Ask me anything! (Literally anything!)
