🌿 SageSpot

Here at SageSpot, we help category-defining figures host engaging book clubs where members connect with the stories and find their people. We are backed by awesome investors like Khosla Ventures, and some of the world’s most notable humans like Tom Brady, Rory McIlroy and Larry Fitzgerald.

Everything we do at SageSpot is to support our Hosts or improve our members’ experience. Here is a look at the four guiding principles of SageSpot:

Create Uncommon

At SageSpot, we provide unique and uncommon experiences for our members through Book Clubs that are Hosted by truly uncommon individuals. People have so many options for what they can do with their time, only by standing out and offering something truly uncommon can we capture and maintain the interest of our members

Support Talent

Our Hosts are our greatest asset. We must prioritize their needs and work to anticipate and meet those needs before they are aware of them. By having a culture of empathy, understanding, and dedication, we strive to go above and beyond for our Hosts

Always Human

Sometimes amidst all the data, code, and feedback, people at startups forget that they are building something that needs to make a human’s life better. Always Human is a reminder that our job is to make our members’ experience on SageSpot as meaningful and human as possible

Build Tomorrow

We recognize the importance of continuous growth and innovation. We are on a never ending quest to delight the user, to Create the Uncommon and Support our Talent. As builders at heart, we strive to stay ahead of the curve and constantly Build Tomorrow
