Two years ago I set out to re-imagine the design collaborative space and disrupt its market. Over this time, I took risks by dedicating myself and career to making that vision happen.
I'm excited to illustrate its continued success with a few recent milestones such as being featured in .NET's Magazine to an increasing amount of sign-ups by the thousands. Today, I announce that Cage app* has been acquired.
Going into any venture you need both a vision and an exit strategy. I knew where the product needed to be in six months and how to make it happen. I was leading all fronts for most of Cage app's lifecycle. That included everything from product strategy and user experience to product engineering.
A later prototype of Cage app caught the interest of two local entrepreneurs who I began to collaborate with to push the product out of beta. The team was an impressive trinity allowing me to step away from customer support & core engineering and allowed me to focus on user experience & front-end development.
Our collaborative efforts led to discussions of an eventual acquisition. I ultimately decided the Cage app was in great hands, and that I was ready to focus on new challenges. The acquisition finalized in October of 2011.
I've already began to take the next steps to close this chapter in my life and move onto my next. I'm extremely excited for where things look to be going in my near future, and I can't wait to share!
Until next time, follow me on twitter, @michaeldick
