KONTOR will be "sun setting" their website and refunding money...on Sept 23, 2016"
Were you one of the companies that joined onto the KONTOR platform?
If you haven't heard, on Sept. 14th, 2016, KONTOR announced that they will be "sun setting their website on Sept. 23rd, 2016...and refunding all payments"
In the startup world, this is called a pivot (when a startup realizes that their business model doesn’t work, and they try another approach). In the business world, this means unstable, not reliable, RED FLAG.
As a commercial design, architecture, manufacturing or sales rep business, you rely on dependability and consistency. Only startups have time to play ping-pong and scrap (pivot) a business model on a whim.
Did you invest time and resources on KONTOR?
