We did something really big last week and * drumroll please * officially opened up our Seed 1 capital round!
First, a little background info: capital or funding rounds are usually restricted to institutional investors, crowdfunding platforms, and – in the very early stages – to friends & family. In addition, capital rounds are generally tied to specific benchmarks in a company’s development, traction, and growth.
I’m proud to say that we’ve been hitting our benchmarks left and right for the last six months. For example:
– We currently have 70+ subscribers, 3,800 users, and are growing 9% month over month.
– We’re in negotiations with some of the largest pet care companies in the country to provide HR solutions focused on hiring and training.
– We recently welcomed our first three international subscribers, thus signaling our opportunity outside the US.
– We’re in conversations with global media and insurance corporations to provide pet-centric content. Our own content library exceeds 1,000 unique pieces, and is growing daily thanks to the contributions of our in-house experts and other pet care industry leaders.
In a nutshell, this means that we are exceptionally well-positioned to dominate the global pet e-learning content market.
But one of the things that has always stuck with me throughout the process of growing this company is just how much support we’ve always gotten from the pet community – in short, the support that we’ve gotten from all of YOU!
It’s almost unheard-of for a private company to offer direct investment opportunities to non-institutional sources; however, as a way to recognize and thank you for your support, we’re opening up a percentage of this funding round to our wonderful, enthusiastic, and savvy pet community. Of course, there are a lot of requirements for those interested, but the main takeaway is this: If you believe in everything that FetchFind stands for – and want to be a real and material part of what are going to accomplish – you can become an investor as well. If you want to learn more, let me know and I’ll send you more information.
With endless thanks and infinite gratitude,
