Less Annoying CRM just passed it's 10-year mark! It's been a long, slow trajectory to get here. For the first ~4 years, the co-founders worked other jobs on the side while building up enough customers to go full-time. In 2014 we moved from San Francisco to St. Louis and got our first real office and started hiring.
Now, we're at >21,000 paying users, 17 employees, and $2.5 million in annual revenue. Those numbers would have seemed absolutely unreal when we started, but we stuck with it for long enough that eventually it became a reality.
To celebrate, we recreated the dinner we had after hitting our first real milestone ever back in 2010. It was a great opportunity to stop and appreciate the journey we've all been on together. Now everyone is ready for the next 10 years!
