Hiring, Fundraising & Fixing: what’s new for Typewise?

August 31, 2021
What went down at Typewise HQ during August, and what we're working on next

August was a busy month for Typewise with our crowdinvesting campaign on Seedrs going live (and hitting over €1 million from 400+ investors already!) numerous bug fixes and autocorrect enhancements to our keyboard app, and the start of new recruiting activity to expand the Typewise team (interested? Take a look at our open job positions) which, by the way, anyone can help us with and earn $2000 bounty for every successful hire we make.

As of September 2021, we have:
