Phew, it’s been a whirlwind of a week. Last Wednesday I announced that we’d be closing Snappy. It wasn’t an easy decision, but one I thought was right for all parties. You can read more about that here.
Today, less than a week later I’m extremely happy to announce we’ve come to an agreement on the sale of Snappy. The short of this is that Snappy will continue to run and grow indefinitely!
The slightly longer version is that we had a HUGE amount of interest in Snappy. Looking back, I should have made a more concerted effort at a sale up front. Just another error for my long list of them 🙂
After going through all the emails and talking with a bunch of folks, I found a fit. A team with a big vision for what Snappy can become and the means to do it.
I’m not going to get into details on them just yet; they’ll do their own announcement once the deal is fully executed. However, I wanted to provide this update as fast as possible so that everyone (most importantly Snappy customers) would be aware of it.
So many customers have contacted me this week expressing their love of the tool and in every case their understanding of the circumstances. They’re an amazing group of customers, and I’m thrilled to be able to keep the service running.
Not only running, but growing and thriving. That was the aspect I thought we wouldn’t be able to bring long term and now with the new team that will become a reality.
I’ve always believed in Snappy and in fact I’ll continue to be a minority shareholder in the new Snappy company. I’m really excited to work with the new team. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.
