Let’s start with a spoiler alert…
We’ve partnered with Bluebridge to launch a brand new Verge app experience for your phone. We’ll use the app for some new VIP benefits and a new way to connect with our growing community.
But more on that later…
When Santiago Jaramillo, Founder of Bluebridge, approached us about collaborating on a new Verge app, we jumped at the opportunity. Here’s why:
Mobile is taking over the world.
Did you know that the average person checks their smartphone 150 times a day? That’s once every 6.5 minutes! Each day, there are more smartphones activated than babies welcomed into the world.
And guess how many apps are on the average smartphone? 41! That’s a lot. Users are spending 85% of time on their smartphones in apps. People use an average of nearly 27 apps every month. We’re addicted to these pocket supercomputers!
We’ve crafted an event to immerse you into the world of mobile apps, by teaming up with Bluebridge and our killer sponsors:
In 4 years, Bluebridge has:
Grown to 33 team members,
and secured over $3.5M in funding!
This month’s fireside interview will be with Santiago — named one of Inc Magazine’s 30 Under 30 “World’s Coolest Entrepreneurs” and TechPoint’s “Young Professional of the Year” in 2014.
Santiago will share his experience on raising capital in Indianapolis, providing entrepreneurs advice on scaling their business to the first $1M in revenue. Topics will include fundraising, scaling sales & marketing, and hiring.
Here’s a few more spoilers…
Come check out the fresh new Bluebridge space in Fishers, Indiana.
It’s pretty swanky, and I think you’re gonna wanna see this. (They also have a b-ball hoop in their office. Challenge me to a shootout after the presentations.)
And, they’ll be announcing the launch of their new product—Mobile App Studio. It’s a powerful CMS that allows organizations to design, build and launch their own apps, plus create and send dynamic push messages. Pretty. Freakin. Cool.
We’re really excited to team up with Bluebridge for the month of July and celebrate the birth of the new Verge app. We’d love for you to share your feedback on the app experience for its test launch. We’ll be adding features in the months ahead.
