At Homebrew we’re big into “founder <> market fit” - when a mission-driven founder decides to work on a problem that’s especially important to them. Well, Blockparty CEO Tracy Chou fits that description, having always been an advocate and champion for fairness and equality. This work, plus being a female software engineer and entrepreneur, has exposed her to the inability of the social platforms themselves to truly help their users protect themselves from online harassment. So she built the company and product that will let each of us do it for ourselves.
We’re supporting investors in Block Party and thrilled they recently announced a $4.8 million seed round to grow their team and continue their work. Tracy is a fearless, committed leader and if working on a problem like this interests you, they’re certainly hiring.
