One of the most common questions I get asked is “why did you name the company ‘Forshay’?”
It may have involved some brainiacs in branding from Stanford and Berkeley’s business school faculty. It may have involved some wine. But when we finally arrived at the name, it was actually very simple — it was named after the inspiration for my becoming an entrepreneur, which was my brother, Will Forshay. He was killed in a plane accident at only 37, and I happened to be eight months pregnant with my first child, who we knew would be a boy. I had been working the long hours Silicon Valley demands, commuting into the office every day. When I flew to the crash site, my mom told me that as much as I loved my work (and I do love my work), I wouldn’t know how long I would get with my son. She encouraged me to find a new way to blend work and family so I would have no regrets with whatever time I am given with my boy. So Forshay stands for all people who love their work, and strive to do their best work while living full lives with no regrets.
