This is going to be a very tough post for me to write. After three years of innovating in the news space the Flud team has decided to wind the company down. StartingAugust 8th, Flud will no longer be in service. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions or comments regarding this announcement.
Flud managed to capture the hearts of millions of you all around the world and we thank you for giving us the opportunity to work for you, everyday, for the past three years. We also want to thank our investors and advisors for believing in our team and our vision, they were instrumental in giving the Flud team a shot.
The Flud team is extremely proud of the work we’ve done on the product, not least of which is ushering the news space into the social era. We still believe that this is a wide open market with a world of opportunities for the right product.
The company will move forward by selling its technology and intellectual property.
As for what the Flud team will be doing next, we’ve really enjoyed this time together and going forward we will continue to build new and exciting projects with each other.
I remember a great Wayne Gretzky quote at this time, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” and we believe that Flud was a bold shot worth taking. We’ll miss seeing your daily Fluds of news and we wish all of you the best. Regards from the Flud team.
