What is up, Arjun from doola here with the 21st public investor update of 2023 (note, these updates also make me realize how fast this year is going, wild, 21/52 down, that’s over 40.38% of the year 🤯).

Without further ado, let’s doola it and dive in:

doola Highlight 😄

• Had a blast playing volleyball with the @doolaHQ team in NYC at Hudson River Park.

doola Lowlight 🫤

• We’ve seen a low dial rate from prospective customers to a new phone number system we added to our onboarding flow. We’re going to iterate here to see how we can better position the number to help customers, without decreasing self-serve conversions.

Personal Highlight 😄

• Becoming a bigger fan of dark chocolate (vs milk chocolate) but still deciding which Trader Joe’s bar I like more (comment if there is another brand/type I need to try)

Personal Lowlight 🫤

• I have to stay more on top of nurturing/maintaining relationships with existing @doolaHQ partners instead of solely focusing on finding net new partners. Can achieve this by carving out dedicated time for both groups, as growth & insights come from both.

Thanks & Kudos 🎉
