The Praxis business partner network covers a wide range of industries, geographical regions, sizes, and management styles, but one thing unites all of the companies that join the network: an entrepreneurial company spirit. One great example of this is found in business partner (and Praxis Winter 2015 business host) Goodybag, in Austin, TX.
What does Goodybag do?
Goodybag is a growing tech company in Austin that is expanding to cities across the country. By providing a simple, easy-to-use platform for office managers at companies to place orders with restaurants for in-office catering, Goodybag’s primary product is an innovative solution to a common problem in almost any office environment.
What makes Goodybag stick out?
Praxis participants at Goodybag get the real deal of the startup experience. Just a few years old and out of one of the nation’s top accelerator programs, Goodybag is truly the experience for somebody looking to get their feet wet in a tech/service startup in a young, entrepreneurial city. Goodybag’s co-founder and CEO, Jay Panchal, understands the Praxis mission of providing entrepreneurial, courageous young people with the opportunity to learn about the startup process.
What would a Praxis participant do?
The Praxis experience with Goodybag runs the startup gambit. Given the company’s unique setting between the service and tech industries, day-to-day operations include everything from product development, customer service, marketing, sales, and the necessary steps of running a growing company.
Participants would have the opportunity to experience it all. They work closely with Goodybag’s CEO and leadership teams as they work to perfect the product and scale the company, experiencing it as founders themselves would. The strongest thing about the Goodybag-Praxis experience is the opportunity to do work both in the trenches — grinding out the day-to-day to build a world-class product — and to work closely with a CEO who is scaling and growing his company.
What is the office like?
Located in an office park in Austin, TX, Goodybag’s office is adorned with posters, filled with computer workstations where the small-but-excellent team works entirely together, and has the obligatory beanbags and meeting area. With a busy CEO who is in and out of the office and a sales team traveling the region to add customers to the platform, a Praxis participant would have an opportunity to spend as much or as little time in the office as they wished.
