Just over eighteen months ago, I sat down with Bosco over lunch and showed him what I had been working on in the late nights after my regular day job. After I was done, he said to me, “how can I get this?”. This became the start of our journey with Pocketbook.
Our vision was very clear – we wanted to change the way people discover and manage their finances. The current methods to do this today are still what you would consider ‘prehistoric’. We plan to change that.
With this in mind, I’m super excited to announce that we now help over 100,000 Australians with their finances. It was just over 6 months ago that we announced we had reached 50,000 Australians. That goal took us over a year to reach. We reached this goal in half that time and it doesn’t look like slowing.
It’s been an incredible journey so far. When Bosco and I quit our day jobs to give Pocketbook a go, we weren’t sure where we would end up. In that time, we moved out of my living room into a proper office in Surry Hills, went to Dubai to show the finance world what we had built, raised some money to keep the lights on, expanded the team to 5 people and now hitting our first 100,000 users.
Of course this would never have been possible without the support from all of our beloved users. Thank you to all of you for coming on board, from the bottom of our hearts.
We would love to hear how your experience with Pocketbook has been – please tell us in the comments below!
