Happy First Birthday to GRID!

Today marks 1 year since I sat down with my friend Borgar for the first full day of work on GRID - the new face of spreadsheets.

A great deal has happened since this day, and looking back this makes me wonder where we will be in one year's time!

* We’ are now an amazing team of 13 people (of which you see a photo of in this post)
* We have raised $4.5M to get our product out the door.
* We have a beautiful office in Katrínartún 4, ready for doubling the team.
* We have built a great product, and some pretty sophisticated technology to make it work.

In the next few weeks we’ll start rolling the product out in it’s more or less complete (but not final!) form. Not bad for a year’s work!

Thanks to all of you that are a part of this journey!

Don't miss out on participating in helping us build GRID - join the BETA family!
