The Week @ VitraCash (15/11-28/11)

The Week @ VitraCash
[WC: 15 November through 28 November]


Hi everyone, welcome to the next instalment of The Week @ VitraCash, where we try to share as much as possible about what we’ve been doing over the past 14 days, keeping you updated and informed.

This Weeks’ Preamble
Thank you for joining us again this week! I’d like to apologise that we skipped a week, however a few internal and external factors meant I was unable to get one done last week.

As usual, everyone has been hard at work, and last week our founders moved to London to be able to take up our new HQ located within Canary Wharf. This week has been full on as we edge closer and closer to the beta launch. Speaking of our beta, if you signed up to take part, please check your email as there was an important email sent out to everyone on Friday 26th Nov as we require 1 important piece of information before we can send the invites out.


What have we been doing this week?

@Koray
I’ve been busy with lots of meetings and behind the scenes bits that all add up to a lot, as well as assisting with the apps. I’m also starting to settle in to my new London home!

@Florian
Did a lot of miscellaneous operation tasks which will become essential in the next few months and delegated a couple of legal and other topics to our partners. Worked a lot on the decision system and finished the first version of it for the beta launch. I am finally in London and I feel like this was one of my most productive weeks working for VitraCash yet, the work vibe of Canary Wharf is already taking its effect. :slightly_smiling_face:

@gabriel_sperrer
I have been busy with helping the development team to ensure we reach our final goal of opening the beta testing as soon as possible.

@Ryan
This week again I’ve faced a few stalling blocks, both internally and externally, but mainly that of pain as my wound continues to heal. I have had some calls this week with different people, both inside and outside of the company for some internal updates we will be performing from now until the end of year.

I have also been working behind the scenes on the forum implementing some other updates, as well as continuing the first drafting of our employee handbook and other HR items.

@Zulfia
This week, Zulfia has been busy with recruitment interviews and settling in within her new London home!

@benyam
Has been working hard on the Android App getting it ready for beta launch.

@alexey
This week I have been working on Card Details Screen.

@Lesya
This week, I’ve mainly been working on our Instagram account! We will soon start posting snippets of our Instagram which we feel may interest you on the forum under the #news-blogs category.

Social Numbers - we will soon be able to offer you some insights into our social media again.
GIPHY - :tada: Our VitraCash stickers have received over 1 million views on GIPHY! :champagne:

Great news so far, can’t wait to see the first VitraCards being used in-person. I did have a quick question though, is it at all possible to see how the adverts you are rolling out look like If not, no worries!

Hey Sebastian!

Absolutely, I’ll make sure I either post some this weekend with the update for you, or I’ll do a separate post with them.

I’ll tag you for sure!

As an investor are we automatically invited to the beta ? (sorry should definitely know this haha). I don’t believe I have signed up if that’s required.

Hi Andy

Investors are not automatically invited to the beta, they only receive their cards prior to everyone else.

If you want to be included, please drop me a message with;

  • Your full name
  • Operating system
  • Email linked to your App Store
  • Phone number with dialling code

I did receive an email on 03/12 saying “:heavy_check_mark: You’re on the waitlist!”

Is that a follow up email from 26/11 as well? Or is that a separate mention? As I did sign up for BETA testing.
