CFB: Only a year ago, Feathr rolled out its first product. What has happened with the business since then?
Yes, a lot has happened in a year. Now, in addition to the original Feathr app, we build several different products. We have a custom-branded app designed for specific conferences; we also have an app that groups of professional associations can use for various events year round. At the end of the month, we’ll also launch a version of Feathr for political campaigns. Quarterly sales have grown significantly since our launch last May. We have had a few profitable months and are close to being consistently cash-flow positive. Read more here.
