Flywheel in 2013

2013 was an amazing year here at Flywheel. Of course, we’re just getting started, but this year is making us pretty excited to see what 2014 is going to bring. We can’t wait to continue to build and create a hosting platform designers can call their own. Here are some of our favorite moments of 2013:

1. We raised an angel round of funding in February

2. This summer, we welcomed two interns to our team and made them do intern things like draw maps and carry boxes.

3. Private and public beta periods. We forged relationships with so many of our amazing customers, and built Flywheel to be even better than it already was.

Of course, we wouldn’t be where we are without so much support from our amazing customers, families and friends, along with the Silicon Prairie community. We’re eager to see what 2014 will bring, and hope you come along for the ride.
