Open letter from D2M CEO
An open letter from the CEO of D2M
Dear Instacube Backers:
Many of you have written me curious as to the status of your Instacube and have expressed concern about the delay. I assure you I have read every message and question; and I wanted to take this opportunity to provide answers.
Shortly after completing our Kickstarter campaign, we realized that the marketing, distribution, and administrative efforts were much greater than we could fulfill internally at D2M and warranted spinning out a separate company. That company is NuMatter, Inc. The legal formation of this company, the recruitment of its staff, and the launch of its infrastructure have cost us time and effort. This has contributed to the delayed launch of Instacube. However, the benefit of creating NuMatter is that we now have the tools and infrastructure in place to support our customer base not only for the initial delivery of Instacube, but also for ongoing product upgrades and feature releases. Our goal is to exceed the user experience that our campaign represented both in the short and long term. The creation of NuMatter will enable us to achieve our long term vision of delivering the best software-hardware experiences for social networks.
Though NuMatter has separate and independent management, I want to assure all Instacube backers that D2M is working with this management team to ensure the timely delivery of the product. You, the backer, were a major reason of why Instacube exists and we continue to be inspired and grateful for your support. All of us at D2M stand behind Instacube. We have a 17 year history of delivering innovative and successful products to the market for hundreds of companies, and though sometimes there are unforeseen bumps in the road, we always deliver. Instacube is well on its way to be a part of our successful legacy. We will deliver your Instacube(s) and we guarantee that you will not only be pleased with the product, but you will be blown away.
CEO, D2M | Design to Matter
