It’s been a month since our for-sale sign was placed in the window, so we thought we'd provide everyone with an update on what all has been happening behind the scenes.
We’ve had numerous, extended conversations with third parties of all shapes and sizes, including sole proprietors, small design studios, venture capitalists, as well as established software companies. A few are people we reached-out to directly prior to the announcement, others are people that came across the news and contacted us shortly thereafter.
If there’s one thing we’ve come to appreciate during this time, this is a slow, methodical process that not only involves two parties discussing finances, terms and details, but also getting to know each other. Everyone has different ideas, plans and projections for how Koken would fit with their existing business, and part of our job is sorting through which opportunities make the most sense in the long term for ourselves, our community and the product itself. It's hard to hit all three targets, but we're trying our best.
In general we're very positive and optimistic that Koken will indeed find a new home. We're trying to move quickly, while at the same time allowing enough time for the process to play itself out. People continue to come out of the woodwork expressing interest, and we're giving each and every opportunity the attention it deserves. As soon as we have more information to share, we will.
