from Bob Bahramipour, Gigwalk CEO
To our founders, customers, and Gigwalkers,
Last week the Gigwalk team announced several important milestones.
We launched 100,000 Gigs with Bing/Microsoft to help them collect 3D panorama photos across 3,500 cities. We announced $6 million of new venture capital financing to help us expand Gigwalk’s reach, technology and customer base.
We also announced a CEO change. After years of hard work and huge contributions to Gigwalk, our founding CEO, Ariel Seidman, is off to invent the newest, new thing (and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next).
As I take on the CEO role, I want to acknowledge, thank, and re-affirm the Gigwalk team’s commitment to our stakeholders.
Almost three years ago three Yahoo! colleagues got together and hatched Gigwalk. Ariel, Matt & David wanted to build something lasting and something that touches real people in the real world. As we grow Gigwalk, we are unwavering in our commitment to those founding principles.
We have been lucky to have incredible customers with vision to see how a mobile workforce and mobile technology can accelerate their businesses. More than ever, we are going ‘all-in’ to ensure our customers’ success – adding features, building new products, investing in customer care, understanding your needs, and taking work quality to the next level.
We love you. The talents of the Gigwalk workforce never cease to amaze us. No matter what customers ask, you all come through again and again. The team here is truly committed to helping each of you be as successful as possible.
We are just getting started. Don’t be shy; keep coming to us with ideas, suggestions and feedback (Android) – we’re on the job for you.
Cheerios from the whole Gigwalk team.
- Bob Bahramipour, CEO
