Nacho Cove, an email startup co-founded by Bendite Chris Perret, is closing down. Chris, a serial entrepreneur willing to share the good, bad and ugly about startup life, posted a thoughtful piece on Medium Tuesday about what went wrong — as well as right.
Chris started Nacho Cove in 2012. Our long-time readers (Hi Mom and Dad!) might recall that we profiled the company as one of our #50startups; its headquarters were technically Portland, though Chris, the company’s CEO, is in Bend. Nacho Cove created an email client — Nacho Mail, which integrates your email, calendar and contacts, and adapts to users needs through its AI management tool. They closed a $1 million seed round last July.
Chris is no stranger to startups. He previously co-founded Nukona, the first complete Enterprise Mobile Management solution, which was subsequently purchased by Symantec a scant 18 months after it started.
