Welcome to Behind Companies

Hi and welcome to Behind Companies! This site is written and curated by me, Marcelo Somers.

I have always been passionate about learning the stories behind how companies arrived where they are. It might stem from my interest in history, but it is truly fascinating to hear the inside stories of what made companies succeed and fail. It is also something that helps people with leadership aspirations grow and succeed.

I hope for this site to become a collection of modern articles telling the inside stories of companies’ successes and failures. I want to make it accessible to anyone, not scattered across dozens of books and Harvard Case Studies.

If you prefer to find interesting things to read on Twitter, all our links are autoposted to @BehindCompanies. You can also subscribe to our RSS Feed.
