The word is out and it’s finally sinking in! A big THANK YOU to Madrona Venture Group for leading our Series A funding and to Vulcan Capital, Divergent Ventures, Founders Co-op and everyone else who participated.
We want to take a moment and thank everyone who helped us get here.
First and foremost, we want to thank all our customers for believing in us and supporting our platform. Your support has been our bedrock and you share an equal part in our success today and moving forward. We will continue working hard to continuously improve Shippable and we are excited about what we can achieve together.
Series A isn’t just about the money. It’s also about finding the right partners who can help take the company to new heights. We want to thank Tim Porter and Madrona Venture Group for supporting and encouraging us from the moment we met. Avi was introduced to Madrona at the Geekwire tournament last year and it’s been a great ride since then. We look forward to a partnership that will only get deeper as we embark on this incredible journey together!
We have a long list of people who have been an indelible part of this journey and will have our eternal gratitude. They are -
Founders Co-op and Chris DeVore for helping us raise our Seed round and being at our side every day since then. Chris always cuts to the chase and keeps us on our toes.
Andy Sack for drilling concepts like customer development and business model canvas into our heads. And for saying that "the guy who knows when he can kiss a girl is the one who will get funded.” It really helped build Avi’s confidence :-| Thank you, Andy!
Adam Doppelt, Patrick O’Donnell, and Darrell Cavens for spending time with us and mentoring us. You inspired us and humbled us with your modesty and willingness to share your wisdom and time. Thank you!
All our angel investors who were the first ones to believe in us. The very first check made us think - “Wow, they’re trusting us with their hard earned money!” - and we worked harder every day. Thank you!
And last but not the least, our friends and families have been super supportive and we could not have done this without the love and understanding they showed every day.
Thank you again. Let the champagne flow :)
Onwards to change the world!
