This is The Founders’ List – audio versions of essays from technology’s most important leaders, selected by the founder community.

“Design is all of the conversations between designers and PMs about what to build. Building for this entire process doesn’t take away the importance of designers—it gives them a seat at the table for the core decisions a company makes. Companies that are successful in the long term are the ones that can repeatedly find the next loop.”

This is the audio version of Kevin Kwok’s essay, ‘Why Figma Wins’.  His analysis of the trajectory of Figma reflects the incremental product thinking & execution required to build this type of bottoms-up giant.

Kevin was formerly worked at Greylock Partners investing in marketplaces, autonomous vehicles, bottoms up productivity tools, and more. He is particularly interested in understanding the underlying structures that shape industries and the core loops that drive companies and writes on his popular site www.kwokchain.com.
