Happy Fourth from SafeLogic

July 3, 2013 Ray Potter

It's the Fourth of July - a time to celebrate, watch fireworks, grill, and maybe have a cocktail or three.  At least, that's what I'll be doing.  One for my family, one for my company, and one for my country.

Stars and Stripes

I've been fortunate to have opportunities to travel all over the world, and I'm always happy to come back home.  I love my country!  Sure, there are things that could be better, but from a personal and professional perspective, there is no place I'd rather be.

SafeLogic is thriving, in no small part because we're here in the US.  We're in the heart of Silicon Valley where the atmosphere is full of creativity and innovation, driven by freedom.  Where else in the world could we have this opportunity?  The American culture of entrepreneurship was established by the first colonists and reinforced by the settlers of the west.  We work in an industry of security and privacy, in a specialty that would not be embraced or even legally permitted by governments in some other countries.

We've got an amazing network of customers, partners, and venture capitalists that support, appreciate, and drive our goals.  When I get positive feedback about what we're doing, our customers, and our roadmap, I just smile and push harder.  It's motivating, inspiring, and even a little intimidating.  These folks are trailblazers, exploring tech advances in the same way we are, taking advantage of the opportunities presented here in America.

This Fourth, I'm reflecting on the success of SafeLogic.  We've worked unbelievably hard to get here.  It has not been easy, and it certainly did not come overnight or without sacrifice.  But we're making a difference and doing cool stuff, not unlike the Founding Fathers.  We're changing the way people think about crypto, compliance, and security.  We are helping people protect their data and preserve their liberty by providing controls for their information.

We've only just begun, and it wouldn't have happened if we weren't here in America, the land of freedom and opportunity.
