We started from the ground up, bootstrapping our way to millions in revenue (in an already over-saturated market) and now just within two years, we are ranked 54th out of the world’s 474 fast-growing bootstrapped software companies published by Latka Magazine... It’s like the “Inc500” list but only for Bootstrapped SaaS companies....and we continue to grow fast!
