What a year!
At Kindara, we believe transparency within our community is a key part of our mission. 2016 has been a very busy year for us, and we wanted to share some of what has been happening in our world, and what you can expect to see in 2017 and beyond.
For many of you, Kindara has been more than an app…it has been a trusted part of your journey in the world of natural fertility planning. You have also followed the journey of Will and Kati, our founders who created Kindara and the Wink BBT thermometer borne from their passion for Women’s health.
In May of 2016, I was asked by the Kindara Board to take over the day to day operations of the business, which I happily accepted. Will, like many creative, passionate founders, was working for years on Kindara, and it was the right time for him to step away. Will continues to be a board member, advisor, and an advocate for Kindara and our mission, we thank him for his contributions and wish him great success in his future endeavours.
At the same time, we were fortunate to be able to add two new executive team members as both partners and leaders of Kindara. Dr. Raychel Muenke and Malte Muenke joined us right around the same time I started as CTO and EVP/Chief Content Officer respectively. Passionate about the mission of Kindara and highly accomplished in growing businesses, they are ideal partners who will help us continually improve our products as well as reinforce our commitment to women’s health.
The team at Kindara has been busy over the last 6 months, and 2017 promises to be an exciting year for Kindara. Highlights from 2016:
Delivering Winks: We have shipped all of our pre-orders on Wink and we are now in-stock, shipping all new orders immediately.Fresh look: We have been working on our branding and our website, and we are proud to be launching a refreshed, updated look for Kindara in the coming days, stay on the lookout!App improvements: We are busy working on updating the Kindara app, adding features you've asked for and making it easier to use with better tools. We plan to launch this in the first half of 2017.New Partnerships: We have been talking to new partners, to offer you more products and services to choose from to help you on your fertility journey (no matter what your goal).
While all of us at Kindara are busy at work trying to improve our products and offer you better services, we know that YOU are the key to our business. Your use of our products, your participation in our community, and your recommendations to friends about Kindara are what sustains us, and for that we all thank you. Our mission continues to be pretty simple; to provide women with the tools and resources they need to live their best lives, starting with achieving their fertility goals.
We would love to hear from you, whether you want to tell us what you think of our new website, ask us a question, or just say hello. We also want to know what we can do to be better, because we know we can always improve.
Finally, for those of you who waited for your Wink to arrive, we thank you for your patience and understanding. Hopefully, Wink has met your expectations and has become part of your daily life. For those of you who haven’t discovered the ease of charting with Wink, we are in-stock and ready to ship.
