For the St. Louis startup community, the story of Hoffman’s journey through entrepreneurship and the decisions behind the pivot from CheckTheQ to Qstodian should serve as an important reminder that the customer really is king. It’s no great secret —we all know that instinctively— but it’s the secret that a lot of first-time entrepreneurs forget.
At any pitch event, you’ve probably met someone person who said, “the reason I’d invest in this company is that it’s a boring business.” What they really mean is that boring industries usually have consistent demand, and where there’s a stable market, there’s usually predictable revenue. Elon Musk loves this investment thesis so much he named an entire company after it. Well, now St. Louis investors can get behind this philosophy too.
The ChecktheQ team’s original focus was on wait-time tracking in large venues such as airports or stadiums. But it was conversations with their founding clientele that led them to discover an almost invisible and unmet need within the industry: custodial services management.
