I left InVision 3 weeks ago.

I learned how to collaborate asynchronously.

I worked with incredible people.

But all I can think about now are the lessons from how a scale-up raised $350M, achieved $100M ARR, and failed. (Failed meaning no path to successful exit in this case.)

I did not realize this inevitability until having time and distance to reflect. So much opportunity, brand equity, and talent wasted by well-intentioned, but unskilled executive leadership. InVision was so close to greatness and just hurts to think about what could have been.
