Last Thursday we hosted an open house event in our San Francisco office for the Mayfield Fellows Program. The Mayfield Fellows Program is a work/study program at Stanford University designed to develop an understanding of the strategy and techniques for growing technology companies. One of our interns, Elizabeth W, is a Mayfield Fellow and helped put the event together.
We love sharing the Telerivet story and our CEO Joshua kicked things off by explaining Telerivet’s mission, why this technology is needed, and how it came to be.
Jesse, our CTO, described some of the ongoing technical breakthroughs that make Telerivet's technology available worldwide. He also touched on the challenges of building software tools for organizations in developing countries.
Jake, our Director of Operations, shared his experience of helping transform our startup from a couple of engineers to a multiple-employee operation with offices in San Francisco and Dar es Salaam. I discussed the unique challenges of communicating our powerful platform to a global audience. And Telerivet's two other stellar summer interns, Aidan and Nafeesa, briefly discussed their experiences with our team in Tanzania and global marketing.
Elizabeth W. gave an interactive demo of Telerivet to the fellows using our polls feature.
It was also the perfect opportunity to show off our newly launched website. Take a look!
