Hi Everyone 👋,
Welcome to Teardowns. We’re excited to have you join us for this experiment as we dive into the fastest-growing companies across different industries and geographies.
As we kick-off, we’re going to be playing around with different formats for this newsletter to figure out what works best for sharing the latest teardowns. We’d love to get feedback from you on any ideas as you receive these – everything from cadence of the emails to how we package things.
You can reach me at any time by just replying to this email or messaging our team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our hope is to build something we can all benefit from and so we’d love to involve as many collaborators as we can.
