  • What Ever Happened to TeamLink? (May 14th, 2012)

    If you’re one of our early club, league and association customers — or just plain observant — you may have noticed that we’re no longer using “TeamLink” to describe our solution for multi-team organizations.

  • Never Too Important to Answer Customers (Nov 25th, 2011)

    Steve Jobs’ recent death has prompted many comments about his extraordinary accomplishments. His vision, passion and communication skills are often sited but I suspect that plain, old-fashioned contact with real customers also played a role. Check out this article at CNN. All of us at TeamSnap jump on the support lines on a regular basis and I am encouraged that Steve found it worthwhile himself.

  • Making the Difference (Apr 22nd, 2011)

    I love messages like the following, which I just received today:

    “Hi Dave, I’m not sure if this email address is reaching you, Dave Dupont, CEO of Teamsnap. If it is, I just want to tell you how nice it is having a receptive audience from your staff to listen to my ideas to make Teamsnap better. I found Margaux on your company’s Facebook page, and she responded to me immediately. She provided excellent Customer Service, and she should be applauded for it.”
    Cheers!

    Many of you must be getting the word out about TeamSnap, because our subscriber base is growing dramatically.  With all the new traffic, however, you might have noticed a slight slowdown in loading your team pages, especially during peak times of the day like lunchtime and early evening.

  • We Applaud a Great Bit of Sportsmanship (Mar 15th, 2010)

    One of our customers forwarded us the attached, which describes the compassion of the US women’s under-17 soccer team after defeating Haiti in a qualifying match.  The reaction of the US goalie, Bryane Heaberlin, and the rest of the US team to the despondency of Hati’s goalie after the 9-0 drubbing exemplifies sensitivity and sportsmanship.  We applaud Bryane and her teammates.  They represent the best of what sports can be about.

  • TeamSnap presents at Open Angel Forum (Feb 4th, 2010)
    A big shout-out tonight about a great new angel investment forum that TeamSnap just finished presenting to, the Open Angel Forum (http://openangelforum.com).
    Your subscription revenues pretty much cover the salaries of the small but dedicated team that runs TeamSnap.  We are actively raising money, however, to accelerate the development of new features that many of you have been asking for.
    That means we talk to individual investors, investor groups and venture capitalists all the time.
    The couple of hours we just spent with the OAF Forum tonight in Boulder, Colorado was the most valuable investment-oriented experience we have yet to be involved in.
    What made it good?  In a word, serious investors and world-class emerging growth companies, (including TeamSnap of course).  Rigorous screening for the invitation-only event ensured that only the crème de la crème from both groups were there.  Investors had to have made three significant investments in the last year.  The five companies present, on the other hand, were hand-picked from over 100 who applied.  Bottom line: people actively looking to invest, companies that are the real deal, and fantastic cross-pollination of ideas.
    Hats off to Jason Calacanis for coming up with the concept and personally overseeing its expansion across the country, and to Brad Feld and David Cohen for taking the lead to establish it here in Colorado.
    If you know anyone with a great little company that is trying to expand, or someone looking to invest some of that windfall they made in their last gig, check out the Open Angel Forum.
    Best regards,
    Dave DuPont
    CEO and MCH
