Xavier Damman created the company in May 2015 and raised a first round of $500k in October 2015 (deck). Pia Mancini and Aseem Sood joined as cofounders in January 2016 (Aseem left the company in April 2018). Pia became CEO in April 2018.
We run our company via multiple Open Collectives ourselves. You can also see the Collective for the Open Source Collective. We still have some work to do to be even more transparent, and we hope to continue improving in this area.
We try to be very transparent about our own finances. We raised a total of $2,815,000 so far ($815k on convertible notes in 2015-2016, $2M Series Seed in June 2017).
