It seems anywhere you go in the startup world the term traction is one that always gathers attention. Everyone wants to know how popular you are. In a way it reminds me of high school all over again, only now the stakes are a bit higher. Now it’s not the eye of that special someone you’re trying to catch, it’s the eye of the special VC firm. Or maybe it’s the eye of the other users in the room. Very few people want to be the first to talk about something new and definitely no one wants to be the last. Traction. I’ve been able to witness this subtle evaluation firsthand with our relatively young open source community, Mautic. And I’m excited to share with you some preliminary results.
