Today blur Group announced raising a further $11.5m on LSE AIM. We are really excited to welcome a bunch of new, leading public institutional investors as well as such broad support from existing institutions.
It’s really cool watching blur, a pioneer in Cloud computing - after all we were one of the first tech companies to run 100% in the Cloud - also a champion of Crowdsourcing (yeah, we invented Expertsourcing) and the creator of the Services Commerce space (s-commerce), getting so much support.
I believe it is deserved - we always deliver outsized revenue growth, outsized customer service, really ground breaking technology and have a strong path to break even over the next year or so.
I am most excited about the incredible talent we attract from all over the world and the difference that they make for our ecosystem (of buyers and sellers) and each other every day. Businesses are migrating to them at a fantastic rate. Nearly 30,000 businesses in 141 countries have adopted blur’s s-commerce platform - now growing by nearly 1,000 new businesses a month.
I am passionate about the success we have with our customers, service providers, partners and investors. But I have to confess that I am most proud of our people. Today and tomorrow.
They are blur’s heroes. Every single day. Thank you all - and join them if you dare!
