Q3: How did you end up there?
When I moved to Brooklyn 6 years ago I was looking to make something awesome, but didn't know exactly what that would be. After studying business plan development while going for my MBA, I was searching for the seed of an idea. Matt and I were roommates for about 6 months when we threw an underground rock show / party one night in our basement. Matt made salsa for it and a mutual friend looked and pointed at both of us and said "You guys should start a salsa company." ...and then we did.
