Celebrating 6 Months of Priio

In the grand scheme of things, six months never feels like a long time. 


Half a year really flies by. The first six months of a new job or recent move soon gets glossed over with newer, more prominent memories of our day-to-day life. 


If it wasn’t for the fact that this month marks the six month anniversary of Priio®’s release, it would be easy to forget all that we have accomplished in the recent months. But as we celebrate half-a-year of Beating Failure, we’re excited to look back on how Priio has evolved to the platform it is today. 


1. Start Somewhere 

Too often we let the fear of failure control us. Failure dictates who we hang out with, what we choose to pursue and even how we decide to spend our free time. It’s time to let go of our obsession with perfection.  


If these past six months have taught us anything, it’s that the best thing you can do is just start. Start somewhere and start strong. When you focus on potential pain points from the get-go, you won’t be preoccupied with an abstract ideal of perfection. Instead, you’ll experience what it’s like to achieve success through beating failure


2. Amplify ALL Voices 

From your team’s college intern to the corner-office executive, each member of your office has a unique perspective that deserves to be heard. Be the one that raises those commonly unnoticed voices and empower those around you to do the same.   


When you invest in your team, you’re also building a company culture that employees will want to stick around for. Lead with a people-first mindset and join the many industry-leading companies that have reaped the rewards of amplifying all voices


3. Don’t Forget to Take a Look Back 

Back in April and months into the pandemic, the Priio team launched the world’s first beat failure platform. While workplaces were still remote and the future of office-life looked murky, we knew that we were taking a risk. 


Today however, Priio boasts a growing user base from around the world. As we grow past our North American founding and make our mark in the DACH region, we’re grateful for where we are today and excited for where we’ll be tomorrow. 


Here’s to beating failure one step at a time, thank you for joining us in celebrating this milestone.

Priio Founder Trevor Hubbard featured in Projector Blog

You can’t succeed without talking about failure.


That was Priio® founder Trevor Hubbard’s key message in his most recent interview with the team at Projector. As the CEO of Butchershop Creative™, an independent strategy, creative and brand experience agency, Hubbard knows a thing or two about what it takes to grow, scale and transform companies. It’s a method he claims relies on two processes: seeking clarity and beating failure.


“As an agency, we’ve scoped and kicked off projects for years asking one key question — ‘What will cause this project or your brand to fail?’ You can’t succeed without talking about failure. This is true for everyone — from Fortune 500 companies to pre-seed startups.”

Welcome Katinka Weber as Priio’s New Senior Program Manager

At Priio®, we are committed to helping teams Beat Failure™. Our failure mindset isn’t something we solely evangelize externally; we bring that same energy to our own hiring needs, committing to finding the right people for our team to share in our mission to maximize clarity for all. 


That’s why we’re excited to announce that Katinka Weber has joined Priio as our first Senior Global Program Manager from her homebase in Germany. This key appointment comes at a critical time for Priio and Butchershop Creative™, Priio’s parent company, as we grow our product offering and user base within Europe and the DACH market. 


Weber knows what it takes to help teams achieve success, drawing from her background as a Senior Program and Community Manager at Plug and Play Austria, the world’s largest early stage investor, accelerator, and corporate innovation platform. Beyond her technical expertise, Weber matches her past experience with an unbridled passion for sharing Priio’s failure mindset far and wide. 


“I am honored to be a part of the Priio movement dedicated to beating failure,” said Weber.  “Priio is more than a powerful tool; it’s an important mindset shift with practical applications that extend far beyond the working world.” 


Weber is well-equipped to further expand the Priio audience in Europe, putting her multidisciplinary experiences in marketing, public relations, politics and economics to work. As for Priio’s methodology, Weber can recall points in her professional life where conducting a pre-mortem and gaining clarity would have made for smoother sailing. This insight is all the more fuel for building upon Priio’s existing use cases. 


“I think clarity is incredibly important when working with a team, no matter if you are working remotely or in a classic office environment,” said Weber. “Clarity really is the basis of success and happiness.” 


We all can benefit from more clarity in our lives. As Priio founder Trevor Hubbard often notes, “a lack of clarity breeds drama.” Weber has witnessed miscommunication create unnecessary distress firsthand, and wants to cultivate clarity in the modern working world, particularly noting a need within companies that are just getting started or rapidly scaling up. 


“The goal for startups is to become one of the largest companies in the world one day,” Weber said, “I would love to see these future companies scale with a healthier mindset.” 


From instituting an ambassador program to establishing new client partnerships, Weber is ready to grow Priio day-by-day. We welcome her to the team and look forward to sharing in the Priio journey together!
