Dear 1871, 

It’s been 3 months since we officially met. And I must, finally, profess my love to you. You are simply awesome and you have made this relationship stronger.
We have had some 3 awesome months together and here’s some personal highlights for me, and Optyn:
  • We got a lot of work done! MVP is ready and private beta starts next week.
  • We got accepted into an accelerator, gener8tor, that we met at 1871.
  • Got a seed investment!
  • Met a few key people that could potentially become advisors.
  • Got a lot of good and honest feedback from fellow techpreneurs.
  • Met 1 more developer that joined our team!
  • Met the Mayor and the Governor and the Ballmmmmmmerr!
  • Saw Abby do the robot while she thought no one was watching.
  • Unfortunately, played very little ping pong – no true challengers!
  • Learned valuable lessons.
  • Drank a lot of coffee from a lot of different places.
  • Did not steal from the self-service kiosk. (This is a joke. Never crossed our minds and plus, there are cameras).

I’m kind of glad we are not in an exclusive relationship because you have so much more to give to others who need it.

Thanks to the entire 1871 team for the support and continued efforts of improving the value that is 1871. Free coffee on me whenever you wish. Just click on your name below.

So thank you again for everything that you do and for making the little guys matter!


With unprecedentedly unprofessed love,
Alen & the Optyn team
