The media often highlights a start-up's exit by lionizing the founders of the company and celebrating the investors who were unwavering in their commitment to the company. And rightly so. But, what often goes unsaid or unnoticed is that each company is filled with their version of "Bernie Carbo" (the Boston Red Sox' game tying home run hitter who set the stage for Carlton Fisk to step-up with his game winning homer in the 1975 World Series). And, while we deeply honor those founders with whom we've gotten into business with and those that have backed them, this spotlight goes to the throngs of team members who hit all of the singles, doubles and triples to make these outcomes possible. With their blood, sweat and tears, they've earned the wealth that will now enrich them and their families.
