Green light, yellow light, red light, repeat.
We were all hopeful that the Delta variant would not derail our CEO Summit plans this fall, but it had other ideas. The word pivot is starting to lose meaning, but pivot we shall!
With that, please stay tuned for the next episode of #FoundryNetwork programming. In order to have the most awesomely safe and engaging experiences, please be sure to respond to our surveys.
As always, below is a recap of the key CEO threads, Don’s corner, “perk of the week,” as well as a preview of what’s on tap.
Until then, be well and kind to one another.
Rena, Seth, Ryan, Moody, Jaclyn, Lindel, Brad, Lynch, Lena, and Don

What: Non-dilutive R&D tax credits for startups.
Startups! Did you know you can get up to $250k every year for your investment in innovation?
TaxTaker helps innovative companies earn extra non-dilutive funding for their business with R&D tax credits. They handle all the boring paperwork so you can get the money you’re owed.
It’s free to sign up and takes 10 minutes to see how much money is on the table for you.
As we look toward the second half of the year, we continue to grapple with questions surrounding COVID-19 and the Delta variant. One thing, however, is for certain: the health and safety of our network (and your families) are of utmost importance to us.
Due to the recent spike in cases around the U.S. and world, we have decided to postpone our CEO Summit from October to Spring, 2022. It will still take place at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, so if you’ve reserved your room already, we’ll simply move your reservation. If you’ve booked your flights, please contact your carrier to make arrangements. The new dates for the summit in the spring are still TBD, but we hope to determine this in the next few weeks. We apologize if this has caused any inconvenience.
In the meantime, we are busy planning other potential programming including regional/outdoor meet-ups and other digital content. We will send around another survey to gauge interest and to make the most out of the remainder of this year.
We want to thank those who have voiced their opinions and participated in the surveys and open dialogue surrounding this event and what is best for the network.
