Mailbird 2.0 Launch Date Is Out

The moment of truth has arrived and the Mailbird launch date you were anxiously waiting for has been decided.

Mark your calendar for March, 12th 2015, the day you’ll be able to download and experience the awesomeness we have been working towards for so long.

We are super stoked for this launch and can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it.

Let’s see what else happened last week…

4th Episode of Startup Show Is Now Online

In the 4th episode of Startup show all the participants were challenged on their marketing and sales aspect which is the core to grow any business. The judges were looking to understand who are the target customers, how participants are trying to woo them through their messaging and their acquisition channels.

For Mailbird the message was simple – ‘An easier way to email’. Email is a form of communication and spending half your day sorting through it doesn’t get your work done which is what Mailbird is designed to combat. It makes a difference in your life by providing a simpler and faster personal & enterprise email management so you spend less time in your inbox and more on things you love.

Watch how Andrea presented Mailbird and what judges thought of it.

Crowdfunding Handstand

Remember we promised if we cross $5000 by Feb 16, ‘Mary’ (Christin) in the video will do a handstand for 20 minutes? Even though we didn’t cross the $5000 mark we didn’t want to disappoint you so Mary did the handstand anyway.

We are at $6050 while writing this update so we still have $3950 to go. Remember, all the funds collected above $10,000 will directly be donated to The International Diabetes Federation and that makes it all the more worthwhile for you. Help us cross $10,000 and you know you will be doing a good deed. Just click the big ‘Fund Now’ button below and help make a difference.
