May was an intense month for VETRI, packed with great news. From community meetup to our first partnership announcement, May had it all.
We kicked off the month with the long-awaited unveiling of the VETRI MVP. On the evening of April 29, the community members which attended our meetup were the first to get access to the app and test it. A BIG thank you to everyone who joined us that night and helped us catching the last bugs of the app.
The team was particularly excited to welcome a special guest from the Netherlands at our meetup. One of our community members who is co-owner and video producer at Wijzijwolf, visited us in Zurich to document the meetup and produce a new company video together with us. We think the outcome of his work is pretty amazing but have a look for yourself.
Since the beginning of the month, we have invited about half of the registered tester. Their feedback has been extremely valuable for us to make improvements. Next to bug reports, many testers also submitted great ideas and suggestions for improvements which will influence our future development. If you have not received our invite to test yet, don’t despair. We are inviting testers in small batches and everyone who signed up to test will receive the opportunity to do so. If you want to know more about what’s going on behind the scenes while you are testing the app, have a look at this blog which explains some of the tech background of the VETRI dApp.
The second big news of the month was the announcement of our first partnership. We were able to win STEM/MARK, one of the largest Czech research agencies as a partner for the VETRI market research use case. We are very happy to have found a partner who is not only committed to use but also to co-develop this use case together with us. The access to expertise from one of the industry leaders is invaluable for the future development of the product. You can read more about the announcement here.
Last but not least, we made some updates to our website which have been wished for by different members of the community. We implemented an easy to navigate road map, where you can follow the progress of the project at one glance. Further, we now have a “community corner” where you can find some of the assets and suggestion forms that many of you have asked for. This is a work in progress and should be shaped by the community’s ideas and needs. So, if you feel like something’s missing, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at [email protected] or via Telegram.
