Iterating a Big, Crazy Idea into a Six-Figure Business


Last year, Cody Candee had a crazy idea. He wanted to launch a company that offered “cloud computing infrastructure for the physical world.” Fast forward to August 2018, and he’s the CEO and co-founder of Bounce, a service that allows people short-term storage of their things (luggage, gym bags, backpacks, and even small massage tables) at participating small businesses. Bounce works with over 60 locations in New York and, more recently, San Francisco. How did this vision bloom so quickly? As Cody told Lean Startup Co. faculty member Elliot Susel in a recent webcast, he based everything from the initial product to its scalability on a bias for action—getting out of the building and talking to customers.
