They have the right set of products with the right timing in the marketplace to truly disrupt the legacy CDN space. They are positioned as a premium product--let all those other competitors bash their brains out on the do-it-yourself portion of the market which is a race to the bottom. In a world where legacy CDN features are commoditized and tomorrow is all about the interconnected world/Internet-of-things/etc., Instart has great positioning and is at the right growth stage to really win this part of the market.
It all comes down to execution. Spending the money on the right things in the right order to win the best accounts that create a virtuous cycle. That results in a lot of chaos, and a lot of connecting-the-dots afterwards, so communication isn't the best but it's getting better as more seasoned people join.
Advice to Management
Very good at setting clear direction. Do less and make sure the things we are doing are the most critical to the top most important customers we need to win.

It's a classic start-up environment but with the best execution I've ever seen. The developers are heavy on the technical chops but there's no egomania. The exec team is great, the network operations team is amazing. They are fielding a potentially game-changing technology to deliver websites with better performance, and getting great customer traction. Never before been in a start-up that within a year of emerging from stealth not only has paying customers, but has had a five-fold increase in the customer list in that time. The combination of something truly new in the space, the quality of the staff, and the attention we're getting keeps working here exciting and promising. Pay is good, benefits are good.
Some of the classic downsides - always too much work to do and not enough people to do it - but that could apply to any tech company of any size, not just a startup. The current office has also kind of reached its handling capacity, which makes it a little hard, especially when you need a conference room or need to use the bathroom -- but the management is actively seeking new quarters.
