We got momentum

I read Hal's recent press release about Fusemail (another smart email provider who realized there is ton of money to be made in mobilizing their customers, behind the carriers) and the last sentence hit me:
FuseMail selected Funambol's software during the second calendar quarter of 2008, the most successful quarter in Funambol's history. Funambol completed a company-record ten sales transactions with innovative providers of email and PIM sync around the world, including several well-known service providers, online portals, such as AOL, and mobile operators. In the second quarter, the company also closed a Series B round of $12.5M in venture capital and significantly strengthened its solution by introducing important new support for BlackBerry and the iPhone 3G.
I know, I should be aware of how well we are doing, but time flies and you need your VP Marketing sometimes to remind you on how many things you did in the last quarter... Now that I put it all together (I am preparing the slides for the next board meeting), I realize it has been the best quarter of my entire business life. Neat.

As my wife usually says "Great, but let me guess: the next quarter is the really though one...". Yep, she is right. Welcome to the startup world ;-)
