It seems yesterday, and we already have been three years operating. Three intense years, full of joy and less happy situations, but always in an ongoing learning.
A learning given by having and listening to Javier Tirapu´s advices and experiences, a leading light we had always seen from the distance, in front of an audience or on a stage. By then, he was working hand-in- hand with us. If watching him on the stage had always impressed us, he overwhelms with his knowledge in the short distance.
I still vividly remember our first meeting with a Clinical Center to present NeuronUP. Full of illusion we visited a reference Center like Aita Menni, located in Mondragón (Spain). I´m obliged to thank Nacho Quemada who welcomed us with all his team: Naiara, Iñigo, Ignacio, and some others. They were eager to listen the proposal of a bunch of fools that started designed a cognitive rehab and stimulation program in the middle of the Spanish economic crisis.
From that very first visit -which in the end became our first customer- until now, ending 2015 we have grown a lot. More than 1,250 professionals work with NeuronUP, and 250 centers of 10 countries have decided to try and trust what we are developing. Thanks all of them for trusting us.
We´ve always believed in our project and we have one vision: “Designing the best tool for professionals, for their everyday use in their stimulation tasks”. And we get so happy when we dig into last month´s platform usage data: We´ve overcome 70,000 resources used by professionals in an only month. We then realize that we are on the right way.
Guess which is best? That we´re still young and we won´t stop growing and creating new features. We proudly announce you that we will launch a lot impacting new surprises in 2016 and 2017 that we are already `cooking.´
- NeuronUP Kids.
- A new website with brand new features.
- Intervention Structured Programs.
- Clinically Validated Programs.
And we warn you, those centers already working with us, that we will be working more closely with you, cause we are aware that you are helping us improving the platform with your amazing suggestions. Could I name Lucía, Marcos, Pilar and many others…thanks a lot for your time!
All this leads us to our special Christmas gift for you. We have thought that we should resume our daily contact, that knowledge interexchange through a renewed Blog. We have created new sections thinking of you as the focus. We will publish scientific publications written by prominent collaborator, and we will post about all the common topics we concern. All in English and Spanish, because you now are spread all over the world.
Because we love to share. Because NeuronUP is made by professionals for professionals, and because we couldn´t have gone this far without you. We count on you the next 366 days that will soon begin. WE hope you like our present.
Íñigo Fernández de Piérola and all the NeuronUP´s Team.
