Layer Wins TechCrunch Disrupt SF, #TCDisrupt


In a well deserved win (and I would say come from behind win!) at Tech Crunch Disrupt, Layer demonstrated that Infrastructure is indeed still sexy.   Layer’s product is an underlying code base that enables platforms to add messaging and communications simply, easily and in a standardized way.  

As the battlefield participants discussed their chances before the awards in an interview with TechCrunch’s Colleen Taylor, she asked Ron Palmeri and Tomas Stolfa if they were concerned because their product wasn’t as sexy or as visible as some of the other products in the Final Six.  They weren’t and they had every right not to be.

Infrastructure IS SEXY.  Its been my mantra for years!

My comment at the time was that they make everyone else sexy. They are like the Spanx of Communications Messaging Capabilities.

I got a chance to spend some time with them across the event and you could tell this team has heart, determination, and grit.  

Congratulations to Ron and Tomas and their teams. 

Well Deserved!
