We received 20,000 $ from Google to Scale Up.
As a self-funded company we feel privileged as this offer is usually distributed among startups part of an approved VC fund, accelerator, or incubator.
How will this benefit to us and to our customers?
Technical Infrastructure Improvement
With GCP, Google makes available a large bunch of services that works great together. It is (in our opinion) one of the best cloud solution for startups considering the cost/service/value ratio it offers.
We currently use 11 virtual servers to distribute our services to all. We are very careful with our technical setup and configuration — as well as internal process — to guarantee a maximum of security, reliability and scalability, with minimum efforts.
To be honest, until yesterday our technical costs were under a budget and we couldn’t afford yet to fulfil all the requirements of a best-in-class technical infrastructure. We can now consider upgrading our systems to bring more redundancy, stronger replication and backup systems, as well as more powerful machines.
Extra budget available to our product offers
Having our technical costs down to almost 0$ for a little while, we will reinvest this budget into our products.
We will bring new skills to the team with recruitments earlier than planned, to scale and improve our services faster.
