The Final Note - Thanks from Team Wishberg
We’ve spent last few years building Wishberg as a default destination for users to share their wishes & discover more interesting wishes from people around the world - things to do, things to buy, travel, adventure, experiences and so much more. The journey has been beautiful, exhilarating, exciting with lots of learning for all of us.
In July 2011, we started on this idea with Tyche’d, we failed. Our failure with Tyche’d was disheartening but we restarted our journey with Wishberg. We were humbled with the support we received from users on Wishberg - from being named among the top startups to be featured among the best products. Our simplest joys and happiest moments were to see people sharing hundreds and thousands of wishes on Wishberg.
We set very high goals for us when we raised our first investment in April 2013. As a startup, data is your best friend. Reviewing those goals at the end of the year, we realised that we have trailed behind on few of them. For us a team, we have always believed in chasing bigger dreams and not take up smaller challenges. Keeping up with that belief, we will be sunsetting Wishberg in coming days while we give time to our users to go through their accounts and wishes.
We’re also excited to announce that the founding team at Wishberg is joining forces with FreeCharge. We believe FreeCharge will be a perfect fit for our team & capabilities - FreeCharge’s scale combined with its amazing leadership, awesome team and appetite for success is inspiring for us. Pravin (@beingpractical) will lead efforts on Product & Growth and Kulin (@NowEntrepreneur) will lead efforts on Partnerships & Alliances at FreeCharge.
We can’t begin to express how grateful we are for your support throughout this journey spanning over last three years. Our heartfelt thanks to our users, our team, our advisors, our investors, our early adopters, our enthusiasts, our well wishes, our friends and our family members.
