Wow, we’re finally here. It’s the end of 2021.
And yet, it feels like we’re still stuck in 2020. 🙄 (Do you also wonder what day in March it is?) I spent the last couple of days reflecting on how (quickly!) this year went and I suggest you do too! No matter how it went, pat yourself on the back for making it till the end of 2021 and be proud of what you accomplished. 😄
2021 was an amazing year for me, and looking onwards to and everything in the works for 2022, I’ve got a feeling similar to what I felt when joining Remote: Hoo boi, I’m nervous but so, SO much more excited for everything to come. C’est la vie!
Happy New Year in advance to you—see you on the other side!

Raising less money at lower valuations — Retool raises $20M Series C at a $1.85B valuation At Retool, we decided to raise the smallest Series C we could, at a valuation substantially lower than most offers we received. Why? Because even though maximizing our valuation and money raised might be optically good, it hurts the core constituency that got us here: our team.
That’s all for now, have a great
Stay kind 💜
