When you're head down and in the trenches building a dream company, applying for various awards never quite makes the list of priorities. Which is why this "Startup to Watch" recognition from the Ottawa Business Journal is so welcome. It just happened out of the blue.
2011 Is Looking Great
We are feeling extremely positive about 2011. After toiling away on a few other ideas for the last few years, we launched a simple festival solution in 2009 and our full festival platform in 2010.
We're hitting our stride with major festivals. The deals are getting easier and are closing faster. Our existing customers are recommending us to others and we have some success to point to.We are quickly adding customers and ramping the business but doing so carefully.
We've been fully self & customer funded from the start which is pretty fantastic (though scary at times). It is also hard earned money and we're not looking to raise money for the time being so we have to use it very wisely.
Thank you to all our fantastic customers, the Ottawa Business Journal as well as our many supporters for believing in us. We're you're up in the middle of the night working on cash flow spreadsheets or testing new features, it really helps.
