April 16th, 2014
It’s hard to believe it, but Sunday was the two year anniversary of the initial launch of Fetchnotes. It’s been another crazy year, and I want to continue with the tradition of last year’s blog post by showcasing how things have changed.
To start off, here’s a photo of what the Fetchnotes iPhone app looked like on April 13, 2012.
And here’s what it looked like on April 13, 2013.
And here’s what it looked like on April 13, 2014.
On April 13, 2012, we were an army of University of Michigan students pushing our first product to market (the first real product most of us had ever worked on).
On April 13, 2013, we were four full-timers, recently graduated from Techstars Boston. At the same time, we were a bunch of quasi-adults trying to figure out what the heck “real life” means while all of our friends were partying their way through senior year.
By April 13, 2014, we had grown to six full-timers, alongside several part-timers/interns still in school. Moreover, I think some of us are starting to get a handle on this whole “adulthood” thing.
Like I said, adulthood.
It’s mind-blowing to me that it’s actually been 3 years since I first started piecing Fetchnotes together during my sophomore year at Michigan. A lot of people I know “played entrepreneur” in college, but very few actually took the leap when push came to shove. I’m extremely proud, lucky, and grateful to have taken my team this far.
To this year and many more!
