Two Thousand Sixteen.
A lot happened over the course of twelve months. Humanity survived a virus outbreak (Zika), took baby steps towards unveiling Jupiter’s secrets (Juno spacecraft launch), voted for an unlikely President (Donald Trump) and one of the largest countries went cashless! – demonetization in India.
As much happened over the past twelve months at Instamojo. While we are heading forward, full throttle into 2017, we decided to look back at our accomplishments in 2016 and we could proudly say we have come a good, long way!
Post demonetization, our user base multiplied. We saw SMEs from different sectors coming on-board. Our users sell everything, right from ebooks and clothes to event tickets and fancy potatoes!
To make the process seamless for our customers, we added several new features including 2-minute onboarding process, payment links, UPI, mobile wallet integration, QR Codes, Invoice Generator, KYC documents and more.
A lot went on behind the scenes. The Mojo’ers hustled hard to make it a possibility. Coffee became our official beverage. We gathered every month to communicate better – 12 townhalls this year!
We pretty much rocked the social media scene, gaining followers and page likes – like a pro!
What mattered to us was the number of lives we touched this year.
Here’s what a few clicks on the calculator revealed – we touched a staggering 300,000 plus lives in 2016!
We made one promise in 2016 and we kept it – we made payments simpler. We’ll make the same promise and we hope to keep it.
This was one of the best years we’ve had so far and we hope 2017 is bigger, better and simpler. Thank you for all the love.
Happy New Year – 2017!
