Growing strong

Last Tuesday we took an evening off to celebrate everything happening here at FreshKeep. We drank, we ate, and we frustrated escape room employees by opening rooms without solving all the riddles (we call that creativity!). We were out celebrating the expansion of both our workforce and our offices and we're already looking forward to the next excuse to go party.

AWS got our back

After a thorough examination of available options; we decided to use Amazon's Web Services to power the backend of our product. AWS was chosen for its technical capabilities, but we were also very (positively) surprised by the level of support and assistance we received from Amazon's technical staff and evangelists. The AWS staff was unbelievably supportive and knowledgeable and played an important part in our decision to use AWS. Our experience with AWS has shown that even if AWS doesn't have the feature you need at the moment, AWS will definitely have it shortly.

The freshness revolution begins

We're happy to say that thanks to the folks over at OurCrowd First we have secured the financing required to begin development. Besides their financial support, OurCrowd First will be supporting us throughout the process and lending us Avi Reichental, formerly the President & CEO of 3d systems and now a general partner in the fund, as a board member and advisor. 

We're excited to be getting started and have already secured offices and begun hiring. Things have really started rolling fast and we are currently on track to go-to-market around Q2, 2018. We couldn't be more excited :-)

Keep it fresh!
