Wow. Today is the one year anniversary of Hey! VINA’s debut in the App Store. What started out as an idea to solve a personal pain point, a love of connecting women, and a passion for technology, has now connected hundreds of thousands of women in 158 countries around the world! Wow.
Today is one of those days where you feel like you can’t believe it’s only/already been a year. I suppose that’s something we all feel as a part of getting older, but we’ve achieved so much and we still have so far to go that I’m feeling it extra hard today.
On month 2 of Hey! VINA we started making a little infographic to share our progress with you, and for our 6 month anniversary we made another, and now looking at the last 6 months to today, I’m so proud of all that the VINA team has accomplished. So many amazing #ladybrags here.
To quickly summarize, we’ve opened up globally, introduced 25 communities, grown the VINAZINE from a little team blog to your favorite resource on all things friendship, launched the VINA Shop, added 2 new quizzes, and added a new profile question. We’ve been covered by hundreds of media outlets all around the world from blogs to podcasts to television, we announced our partnership with Tinder, and we have made so so many new friends.
And we have so many more exciting things coming for you!! I don’t know about you, but after the Women’s March, I am feeling the power of (and dire need for) sisterhood, and I hope you join us our mission to make the world a better place for women by connecting with each other and empowering one another to be our best.
Last but certainly not least, let’s pop a bottle of champagne today and toast to friendship.
