Happy New Year!

January 8, 2021

On behalf of VGC Software, I wish you to have a beautiful year 2021!

The year 2020 was full of challenges, but I hope you all had some good news along the way to brighten these troubled times. In the case of VGC Software, two big milestones were achieved:

  1. The project was "pre-incubated" at the BIC de Montpellier startup incubator.
  2. And it obtained a public grant from CNC-RIAM.

Achieving these two steps took away some precious time that could have otherwise been spent on software development, but overall it is greatly improving the chances of success of the project. I am now in a much better situation than I was a year ago to actually make it work! I now have enough budget to hire an additional developer for around 12 months, and I am also part of a supportive ecosystem of other entrepreneurs from which I can learn the business side of things.

But most of all, I am grateful for your support! Our community is still very small, but it keeps me motivated. So a big thank you to everyone who joined the project in 2020, and to everyone who joined before 2020 but is still here reading these updates :-)

Don't forget to join the Discord to keep the conversation going, and have a wonderful year!
