Where Are They Now?
Ethan from Vango (featured in Episode 1) has the latest on where the company is at since their episode was taped:
After Demo Day, Vango has continued to grow, though not without a lot of hard work. Even without Dave breathing down our necks, we continue to grow 30% month over month. We surpassed our $1.6M fundraising goal and closing our round having raised $2.2M. We used this money to hire five new members to the Vango team, including 4 engineers who can finally help Win keep the site up. We graduated from our island of desks at the 500 office and moved into an old brewery in SOMA SF (popular area for startups), which is full of sweet exposed brick and original art from some of our favorite artists.
Of course we aren't slowing down any time soon. We have been working extremely hard to launch our brand new website and app, which will happen October 1 - so start your countdown! These awesome updates will bring discovering original art to a whole new level. We are also launching Vango Limited, our limited edition prints offering so that truly everyone can own a piece of art, from college students to CEOs.
On a more personal note, we said bon voyage to Mo as she and her husband left for a 3-month adventure across Europe before they welcome a new addition to the family this winter.
