Investors & Oversight
Raised $3.6 million, growing between 50% and 300% annually, and profitable
An Iterate belief is that we are unbiased when making technology recommendations to our Enterprise Members. When working with Members like Ulta, Jockey, Party City, GSK, CHANEL and others, we recommend technologies based not on the CEO, not on the amount of money a startup has raised, not on the prestige of a startup’s investors. We won’t believe that an incumbent owns the best solution either. Instead, Iterate’s recommendations are based on the quality of a technology ROI, and best strategic fit for the enterprise.
Iterate has unique governance due to our decision to not raise venture money. This position, allow us to distribute a portion of profits to our employees and investors to not be required to find an exit (Venture backed companies can't ignore the exit especially as they approach the 7 to 9-year mark) Iterate can turn on a dime – as we did to build Signals and Interplay for members like Ulta. (Venture backed companies can find it difficult to gain investor and board alignment when management feels a need to pivot.)
