This morning, the Ottawa Business Journal (OBJ) published an article about Klipfolio, "We're not building a company to be acquired". In it, Allan Wille offers his thoughts on the last 10 years in business and where Klipfolio is going in the next 10 years. As you can tell from the headline, Klipfolio is here to stay.
The cool thing is that there is a nice backstory to this article. When Allan, Peter, and James were first founding Serence, the OBJ published a 12 part series that captured the start-up's early successes and failure. The series wrapped up in 2002 leaving the reader wondering (hoping) if this small start-up would succeed. The story of the company continued with many new chapters being written along the way: the big Staples win, entry into operational business intelligence, or the rebranding of Serence to Klipfolio. This article picks up where the original series left off and captures the defining moments of the past 10 years.
Thanks to Courtney Symons for putting the article together, and Mark Holleron for the snazzy photo of Allan Wille. Great job!
