How do you know when your startup is working? Is it when you start making money? Is it when someone tells you that it’s working? Is it when you believe that it’s working? Most people would choose option “A,” a business is working when it’s making money.

That’s why for Episode 5 of Season 2 of Startup Capital, we spoke with two Tallahassee startups who’ve discovered how to go from idea to revenue. Both of the businesses featured in this episode have made it past the early stages of starting up, and now, they’re looking to scale.

Our first guest is an apparel company with a socially-impactful mission. DivvyUp Socks manufactures custom-designed socks and donates a pair for each sale. Founded as an FSU class project by Mitch Nelson and Jason McIntosh, DivvyUp now sells custom socks all over the world.

FullScaleNano is another startup founded right here in Tallahassee. This team of scientists and business leaders creates quality assurance software for companies who work with nanomaterials (materials made of particles smaller than one billionth of a meter). The process of analyzing electron microscope images of nanomaterials used to take dozens of hours. Now, their NanoMet software does it automatically.

For Episode 5 of Season 2 of Startup Capital, our host Lucas Lindsey talked with DivvyUp’s Jason McIntosh and Mitch Nelson, and FullScaleNano CEO Jodi Chase, about the decisions and strategies that put them on the road to success.
