Earlier this year, I decided to close LaborVoices after 9 years of operations. I sent a long email to LaborVoices investors, explaining how we got here. Several of them suggested that I should share this more broadly. In the interest of helping others along similar paths and for our many partners and supporters, below is an adapted version of the email for a more general audience. I’ve highlighted the proximate reason for closing LaborVoices, as well as the biggest lessons we learned and our most-significant accomplishments.

This post joins several others, from folks who have reflected on closing their startups.
