Steve Corcoran and Ryan Farley operated a lawn care service while they were still in high school. The pair learned to code and had a fully operational site within 6 weeks. Armed with 100 customers, the pair moved to Austin, Texas, where they enlisted their third co-founder, Jonas Weigert, to improve upon the platform that they had built.
