When Tauruseer entered the software security market, they targeted large enterprise companies. But when that failed, they went back to the drawing board. With lots of self-reflection and input from channel partners, founder Jeremy Vaughan identified those distractions that stunted his company’s growth.

Jeremy’s journey began from a deeply personal experience with his daughter when her diabetes device and mobile app failed due to “code rot.” Tauruseer solved that issue and more in the compliance and cybersecurity space. The SolarWinds cyber attack in 2020 and the onset of the COVID pandemic highlighted the problems that Tauruseer was solving.    

Join Jim Barnish and Jeremy as they discuss Tauruseer’s pivot from enterprise toward small and mid-market companies, creating an ecosystem for customers, and the hard lessons he learned along the way.

3 Key Takeaways

  • Identify your ideal customer profile (ICP). Don’t get distracted by competitors or bogged down in the wrong market.
  • Founders and CEOs of the future will create and lead ecosystems, not just companies, to meet the needs of those ICPs.
  • Find your ‘why.’ It will not only guide what you do, but also attract the right partners and talent to help you grow and realize that vision.
