Being a startup has been interesting, thrilling and stressful all wrapped up in one experience called "Pieces of There"! It's been great and our small team can't be more excited about what we are creating. We wanted to take this opportunity to give you a bit of insight into what is going on with the company:
- We now have nine (yes 9!!) people working on Pieces of There, and killing it! From strategy, to procurement of local products around the world, to marketing gurus. We're in it to win it.
- We just reached over 300 different individual packages of local products that are for sale on Pieces of There! Each one comes with a special piece of the place they come from or represent.
- On even bigger and more exciting news - we are going to start working with a variety of military support organizations and we're going to be helping to make home not feel so far away for some of the men and women giving their life to make sure we are safe here in the USA. It's a honor and dream come true for us!
- We are in now working with about 20 major and awesome universities, and are talking to about 20 more. Universities are stellar partners for Pieces because they help us reach parents who might want to send their college student a piece of home while far away.
2014-15 is going to be a rocking year for Pieces of There. Stay tuned!
