How we do it

Tango History

Mission

Ken, Dan, & Brian dropped out from Harvard Business School in 2020 to be the co-founders of Tango. Behind the decision was a shared passion for work excellence and coaching.

Experience

Ken, an Uber product and data vet, overcame the gamut of operational challenges scaling at Uber. Dan, a B2B SaaS investor at General Catalyst and active mentor made it a constant mission to capture and coach best practices . Brian, a lifelong hacker, teacher, and entrepreneur, knew that productivity could be analyzed and studied.

Today

Tango is a small but rapidly growing SaaS company focused on Workflow Intelligence ... for everyone. Learning on the job is way too hard. Job attrition is too high. Mastery should be achievable for all.

Hi, I'm Ken, the CEO of Tango. Before setting out on a mission to celebrate how work gets done, I spent 4+ years at Uber riding the rollercoaster of a generational company. After getting my feet wet with entrepreneurship at Atomic VC, I went to HBS. There, I met Dan and Brian and we founded Tango.

Hey I'm Gio. I lead Growth at Tango. Before, I spent 4 years at General Catalyst as a b2b SaaS investor gawking at the leaders of portfolio companies like Stripe, Gusto, & Hubspot.  I then was on the IPO filing team at Livongo for 8 months before going to HBS where Ken, Brian and I started Tango.

Brian Headshot

Hi! I'm Brian, CTO of Tango. Before Tango, I started companies in education and blockchain and learned invaluable lessons about leading early-stage teams.

Whether it's solving problems on my own or helping others, I live for that “aha!” moment and all of the endorphins that come with it. It's probably why I enjoy working at Tango so much.

On the weekends, you can find me treasure hunting in the Rocky Mountains, making homemade pizzas, or playing around with GPT-3 (am I even real?)
