I’m thrilled to announce that Passpack has received an additional 74,000 euro follow-on investment from Zernike Meta Ventures.
ZMV first invested in Passpack in late May 2008, and has renewed that commitment (let’s celebrate!) just last week with additional funding. Folks, in this time of extreme crisis, and companies starving to death for cash – this feels really good.
What Are the Funds For?
1. Continued Product Development. We’ve already got Auto-login 2.0 underway (it’s sooo much better – watch for a call for testers in the next day or so). We’ll follow that up with enhancements to the collaboration features and set-up process.
We’ve also got a complete CSS revamp (yikes!) slotted. A less obvious change unless you’re digging around our source code, but much needed to speed up the process of pushing new features/versions/themes out the door…you know, that list of stuff we’ve got to do.
3. Marketing. Remember that survey we had you take? You filled it out in droves! Not only did that help us show our investors how much you support Passpack, it also helped us understand how to improve AND gave us some ideas on how to reach new people that will love Passpack too! So we’re going to test the marketing waters with a little-bit-o-budget.
4. Mo’ Better Content. We’ve been sorely neglecting this blog, and there’s a long list of help videos that would be really useful and a few people have asked for forums or a monthly tips newsletter. We’re still working out a priority for these things, so if you have specific requests for content, speak up in the comments.
5. Super top secret stuff that I can’t tell you about. [smile]
