Big game in Oxford this weekend.

If you read Ben Horowitz book, “The Hard Thing About Hard Things”, hopefully you learned that employee feedback is tremendously important.  It’s also very tough to figure out how to give.  JuvodHR fixes that.  I have recommended it to all the startups I am invested in.  Pretty slick software that accomplishes a lot.
