We're ending the year with great opportunities and promises of more in 2015

December 2014

The holiday season is a time for family and friends to gather and enjoy the relationships that help bring joy to their lives. I consider this Ecosystem—this powerful community of Business Partners, startups, developers, and more—to be my family. And for this holiday season, I could think of no better gift than to share some of our greatest EOY accomplishments and opportunities.
