Entrepreneur 2 Entrepreneur: Erin Newkirk on Acquisition



Erin Newkirk
Thank you to Split Rock Partners  for underwriting the Entrepreneur 2 Entrepreneur series.

Erin Newkirk is the co founder and CEO of Red Stamp, a mobile/ social commerce company “on a mission to make relationships stronger, one personalized post at a time.” Red Stamp was formed in 2005 and acquired last month by The Occasions Group, a milestone to celebrate next week.

Did you ever envision that Red Stamp would be acquired or was it part of the master plan?

I think in the beginning, and to get you through the really rough stretches, every entrepreneur dreams of the insanely exciting exit, where you have multiple companies groveling at your feet, wooing you with promises of a security, fame and fortune.
