Shortly after we started Tellagence I started doing video updates to let my family, friends and business partners know what was going on with the business. As we have grown and continue to get busy I have not done those as much as I would like. Last week I took a few minutes to record an updated. We were in between meetings down in Palo Alto so we stopped by the Stanford campus to enjoy the campus and a bit of sun.
I'm getting better about making my video updates more concise but for those of you that enjoy reading more here is what we have been up to over the past 60 days. If you have been following along with the blog you know that at the first of October we had the chance to launch Tellagence to the world at DEMO. The press we received from that event (Wall Street Journal, Venture Beat, TechCrunch, Bloomberg Businessweek) drove a ton of interest in Tellagence. We have been doing 2-5 demos a day for most of October and November.
These have been a great validator of the interest in the product and the importance of the problem we are solving. I would expect lots of tire kickers but we have had lots of great conversations with some of the top brands and agencies in the world.
We are also out raising another round of capital to fund our growth. With the demand we have after launch and a market that exploding we are putting the resources in place to create a company that can have a major impact on how people leverage social networks for their business objectives.
Things are moving quickly and we are having a great time. We are spending the last couple weeks of the year gearing up for an exciting 2013. We are hiring and we are bringing on new customers. If you have interest in either reach out to us. We would love to chat.
