It’s been quite a year for us at Happenstance! We hired a CEO, were featured in Success Magazine, were selected as an exhibiting company at the FUND Conference, became a finalist at the RedEye’s annual Big Idea Awards, among other exciting achievements. And most recently, we were accepted into 1871’s WiSTEM (Women in STEM) program!
What does that mean? WiSTEM is a well-recognized program in the technology community that helps women grow their businesses and work through challenges that they’re experiencing. The program has already graduated more than 50 companies. And by the end of February, we will join that list!
Speaking of February, that’s when we also plan to launch our beta version in River North! We tried to have this ready a couple of months ago, but some unexpected technology issues unfortunately set us back. So, February is our new deadline! And if all goes according to plan, we’re shooting to officially launch in a couple of additional neighborhoods in the spring or summer!
If you’re interested in getting on our private beta list, please send us a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we could send further instructions when the time comes. We’d love feedback on our technology and stories!
In the meantime, we’ll be working on stories and making Happenstance an even better experience for you. If we accomplished all of this in 2017, could you imagine what we could do in 2018? We’re excited to see what the New Year has in store!
