Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! with Matthew Vroom (tech entrepreneur, CEO & founder of Henge Docks)
Boom boom boom…
Is your life is designed around pursuing your passions tenaciously? Creating a life by following gut instinct and pushing yourself beyond your comfort to try things you think that you might love, through an ethos of #ChooseYourOwnAdventure?
If it’s not right now, you have a fire burning in you and you’re made like me, then it should be! And that’s that this week’s show is all about! This week, Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! with San Francisco-based, tech entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of Henge Docks, Matthew Vroom.
Launched in April 2010, Henge Docks sold 3 months worth of inventory within the first 3 days of the launching, grew from a single product line to become the leading supplier of docking stations for MacBooks after only 8 months on the market and in 2017 enjoy one of the few direct hardware partnerships with the Apple brand globally.
Fascinating show as we chat about Matthew Vroom’s latest invention, the 6 months spent living out of his Nissan sports car after completing business school in Texas, driving around the USA hot-spotting to work remotely on Henge Docks before finally settling into San Francisco, becoming semi-famous for the creation of a satirical cartoon called “I hate Pam” whilst in college, the logistics of working with manufacturers in foreign countries at a time when the tech that Henge Docks were creating hadn’t been envisioned yet and so much more.
First and foremost, Matt Vroom is a husband, he’s a dad and he’s an ambitious, creative and strategic businessman. He is also the cousin of Illinois-based soya bean and corn farmer Nathan Webster AKA @nlwebs, my partner-in-crime on the @craftbeerlovin’ Instagram account, Matt Vroom is an inspiration and I am proud to call him my friend.
“Don’t defer your life’s goals.” Make a start, make a start today. After all… we’re both just normal guys who took the leap of faith in pursuit of happiness…
How many of you can say that you put everything on the line for an idea that you believe in? And managed to make it work! This is that story.
