It’s our mission to solve this problem…
A typical B2B journey – Gartner
Within a large and fragmented ecosystem.
When change is really needed.
Corporate innovation FOMO is at its highest point in years, with major players all reigniting initiatives to accelerate innovation.
B2B has reached an inflexion point with an appetite for a more digitally assisted approach to work than ever before.
Restrictions on global travel have further reduced the opportunity we have to meet and cultivate relationships.
Millennials are taking the reins at leadership levels in legacy industries and hate clunky, offline workflows.
And a significant target market opportunity awaits.
With a clear opportunity to accelerate growth with investment.
Expanding verticals and regions in parallel
Scaling the business beyond its initial target market focus of the Technology, Media and Telecoms vertical plays a significant role in our growth plans. It offers the company the potential to become a 50million USD revenue business—a 5x opportunity from our initial projections.
We are already making progress on our own.
