Yesterday, we launched our crowdfunding campaign for Togethera (the private social network for your family, partner and closest friends). The response has been fantastic and within 24 hours we’ve had 29% of our investment goal committed with 45 awesome investors coming on board.

Why we’re raising
Matt and I came together to work on Togethera nearly two years ago. We saw a huge challenge ahead, but a massive opportunity as well. We’ve come a long way since then. I couldn’t be prouder of the team we’ve built and the investors who have supported us.
A lot has changed in the last 24 months. Mobile has continued to explode; connectivity is ubiquitous; on-demand services are changing our cities and the pace of change is accelerating. What remains constant is our need to have rich, meaningful relationships with the few people who truly matter to us. The need to create, preserve and enjoy memories that matter.
These are powerful, human needs heavily affected by technology. With Togethera, we’ve only just scratched the surface of our vision for the product and company. We’re raising money now to grow the team that will helps us shape and achieve this vision faster.
We’ve worked hard in the last twelve months to create a product that we’re really proud of. We’re now ready to focus on getting the word out as much as possible. To do that we need help. We need motivated, engaged advocates who’ll help us spread the word about Togethera. Crowdfunding is the ideal platform to achieve that goal. It’s matured a lot in the last 12 months and we believe it’s now an indispensable tool to fund a startup.
