Recalibrating prices, and Postmark got acquired

Hi Bootstrappers,

When I was starting Feature Upvote, I used Postmark as a model for the type of company I wanted to be build.

Not Postmark the product per se, but the way the company was run. A people-first company, that encouraged their staff to thrive outside of work.

Better still, Postmark was proudly bootstrapped. One of us!

In this week's episode we chat about the recent announcement that Postmark has been acquired, and what that means for their company and their founders.

Listen to this week's episode of Bootstrapped.fm.

Until next time,

Steve McLeod
