@Zulfia_Kadarberdieva This week, Zulfia has been busy with our social media presence. She’s kindly provided us some numbers so everyone can see our progression!

Instagram, SEO & YouTube - Unfortunately, we have had some issues with our social media presence this week, we hope to be back to normal next week.

This Weeks Good To Know

  • Our first ever real world transaction with a VitraCard took place on 30 September!

  • Emails that have been going out have been worded wrong, and we apologise for this. We have edited the wording going forward, and once again apologise for any misleading information given.

  • Our apps are close to being opened to Investor BETA testing.

  • Cards are ready for shipping! :truck:

  • Merchandise has entered the printing process. We have seen an awesome pre-production print of our notebook and… wow.

  • Staff shirts have been received! :eyes: :tshirt:

  • Our partnership with Growth Gorilla continues to blossom and help us ready towards launch, with some exciting bits nearly ready to go live. This week some adverts have gone live, and some more are getting ready. You may have seen it on Facebook or other social media!

  • We are close to confirming which provider we will be going through to Plant a Tree for Every Investor. (I know this has been here for a couple of weeks, however it’s important for you all to know that we’re not forgetting about it).


Until next update, if you have any questions, feel free to drop a post or comment on the forum!

Does this just relate to planting trees to offset the carbon from the merch?

@ryan there was a mention of a press release after the funding round closed out. Is this still going ahead or have I missed it? I think there is a positive success story to tell, backed with real tangible figures.

It reads to me this just for the mechanise and a different organisation is being looked at for planting trees for investors. As you say, let’s see what the Boss comes back with :jack_o_lantern:

Read the italics!

This is planting a tree for every investor. The merchandise offset isn’t done by us; this happens through the company we bought it from. Read more here.

It is just sitting in limbo right now, but I want it posted so people know we haven’t forgot.

@Steve re:

I totally agree there is a great story to share. We have prioritised the app over the last few weeks, so I apologise that we haven’t got round to it yet. It is still being done and I believe @FlorianWinkler is working on this with Growth Gorilla.

Just wanted to get sure if I mixxed something there which I did, my bad :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

(And I’ve read the italics still mixxed it together shame on me)

Correct. I believe we know who we’re going with; it’s just a matter of formalising it all.

Maybe I’ll plant my own tree to avoid any further confusion :face_with_hand_over_mouth:
