SoapBox – A shared one-on-one and team meeting agenda app designed for managers.

Startup Name: SoapBox

Tagline: A shared one-on-one and team meeting agenda app designed for managers.

Elevator Pitch: Rarely are managers set up for success in their roles. In reality, most managers stumble into management. One day they’re “doing” and the next they’re expected to teach others how to “do” as well as them. When the saying, “people quit bad managers, not jobs” holds so true… Something needs to change.

So, is the solution then more coaching and training sooner? Sure, in a dream world. But we’ve got 90 days to hit our quarterly goals and we’re already behind. So here, read a book and hope it helps get you up to speed quickly — the same thing we’ve been doing for decades.

That’s why we built SoapBox: A platform to help managers juggle their team activities while coaching good management habits. Turning your “meh” one-on-ones into high leverage opportunities to get the most out of your team. Your weekly meetings into a productive rhythm that builds the team up. Ultimately turning chaos and stress into an organized, calm, incredibly productive week for your whole team.

It’s the first platform designed to help those with the unique burden of managing people off of those who manage… people.

Target Market: Managers at 50-500+ employee companies
