We’re turning 7 and we want you to join the HOUSE party! We couldn’t be more excited and grateful for you, our wonderful and loyal customers. The remarkable milestone would not have been possible without you and the incredible SweepStars using the SweepSouth Platform.
“We’re thrilled to be celebrating our 7th anniversary, and as founders, are so grateful to you all.”
“This includes the incredible SweepStars who trust our platform as a way to have access to dignified work opportunities, our team who have wholly signed on to our mission of creating opportunities and changing the home services space for the better for millions of people, and our customers, who have supported us in growing SweepSouth, and to whom it is our pleasure to be of service,” say CEO & Co-Founders, Aisha Pandor & CTO, Alen Ribic.
We’ve also been fortunate to have had the trust of a bunch of great investors as we’ve scaled in South Africa, and more recently in Kenya and beyond. “We thank them all again for taking this journey with us, particularly over what has been a super eventful (to put it lightly!) last year. The previous 12 months, in particular, have come with many important reminders, including the importance of people and authentic and empathetic leadership in the face of struggle and uncertainty, pulling together to help those who are most vulnerable, and a renewed focus on togetherness with friends and family, and taking care of our physical and mental health,” they continue to say.
While the challenges that the pandemic has brought are far from over, we are ever hopeful for the year ahead. “Year 7 will bring exciting developments in terms of new verticals and markets, and growth in the scale of impact we can create, all while remaining true to our values. In the context of a pandemic, it’s a huge privilege to be heading up a growing business, and we don’t take that for granted, and the SweepSouth team looks forward to some great times ahead,” say explain.
