The Teaser 👁

So Why Email And Why Compete with Outlook & Google? 👀

  • Email is broken, it has not been updated and is just a feed of information, rarely a flow of actionable tasks, updates and insights you want to receive.

  • Email is still the most important communication tool

  • Email is where you still sign off work, gain approval on budgets, headcount and often where bad news arrives, etc

  • Email shapes businesses and will for years to come

  • Even with the move to chat and the chatification of work, email still is where clarity lies within business and is the primary channel for communication with external people, vendors and clients

  • Email clients are rarely updated and although there is Spark and Superhuman, these are not built for the modern workplace

Scroll down to the pitch notes below to review how good my email client would be to fix the broken email and communication clients.
