today we reveal…the Wall of Fame!

By | awards and key achievement s | No Comments

All of us here at The Simplifiers wanted to take a moment and give thanks to YOU, our backers, our clients, our friends and colleagues who supported our Kickstarter.

Quite simply, you ROCK.


In case you missed it, back in January 2016, we launched a Kickstarter campaign with the aim of raising $10,000 to help us upgrade the software behind The Apprentice Program. Thanks to you [all 166 of you!], we smashed this goal and raised over $12,000 in just 30 days.

Now, a million thank you’s just wouldn’t be enough, so we wanted to commemorate this special occasion in an immortal format: our Wall of Fame!

If you were so kind as to support us on our mission, head on over to check out your place on our brand new Wall of Fame page.
