OpenView Announces the OpenView Labs Website New Resource Site Provides Practical Advice and Information for Senior Managers of Expansion Stage Technology Companies Boston, MA – Date – Expansion stage companies seeking inspiration and ideas on building great companies now have a new resource for information. Today, Boston venture capital firm OpenView Venture Partners announced the release of the OpenView Labs website ( The OpenView Labs website was developed to share the firm’s expertise and approaches for building expansion stage technology companies. The overarching mission is to produce actionable and digestible ideas and inspiration that help our readers build great companies. “We created the Labs website to help our readers identify the most important goals and initiatives to undertake their businesses, get a basic grasp of the many ideas that they could be using in their businesses, and point to the people and other resources that they could utilize to get a more sophisticated understanding of the ideas out there,” described Scott Maxwell, senior managing director of OpenView Venture Partners. “The Labs website was created to help our target audience understand the business benefit of several ideas and introduce action steps necessary for a solid basic implementation of the ideas,” added Amanda Maksymiw, OpenView Marketing Associate. The Labs site features daily articles and videos sharing tips on improving many facets of expansion stage companies, specifically customer development, whole product development, and company development. The ini- tial Labs website authors come from the OpenView team and network. Great ideas from the industry are also included on the website on a daily basis to help share even more beyond the OpenView Labs website. Overtime, OpenView hopes to add expert authors from different specialties necessary to build great companies and continue to expand the network of contributors and curators. The target audience for the website is entrepreneurs and professional managers who are building technology companies, are at the expansion stage of their development, and have aspirations of becoming dominant global leaders in their product markets. “While every article is aimed at this very specific target audience, we expect readers with companies at other stages of development and in other industry sectors will benefit from the ideas as well”, says Maxwell.
