Social Tables: 2014 – Year in Review

This post was written by Social Tables’ Manager, Communications, Claire Harrington, CMP.


2014 was a whirlwind year for us! We went from 17 employees to 65, from a few hundred customers to several thousand, from just one product to a full platform, and from being angel-funded to being VC-funded. Here is a stroll through memory lane! Thanks to each and every person who has helped us get to where we are today.
