TIKI Talk Ep. 36! - Investor Update (For Everyone!)
TIKI Talk Ep. 36! - Investor Update (For Everyone!)
Mike and Shane expand on our monthly investor update to fill everyone in on TIKI happenings

TIKI Talk Episode 36 focuses on Mike’s monthly investor update, which fills people in on what’s been happening in the past month and what we’re working toward in the coming month.

Mike’s “colorful” investor updates are out of the ordinary, but are written in a way that invites anyone, not just investors, to get a sense of what is happening behind the scenes at TIKI.

We take things a step further in this podcast. If you’re more of a listener than a reader, then you’re in luck. Join Shane and Mike as they break down the key takeaways from the update, which includes executing product market fit, the timeline on TIKI’s SDK launch, what the launch means to Mike and Shane respectively, the importance of content moving forward, our new relationship with IDS and their work on our branding and design, what Ricardo’s been working on on the mobile end, progress with our DAO, and news from the hiring front as we scale the team here in Nashville.
