Greetings, this is Rolan, the CEO and co-founder of Arrow Ai.
First, thank you to everyone who has invested, followed, or considered investing in our company. We founded this business with a single focus in mind, to enable the millions of solopreneurs, giggsters, microbrands, side hustlers, and small businesses who want to succeed in digital advertising.
We started with a simple idea: if you want to spend $10 bucks a day on advertising, what do you do? I grew up in Austin Texas and when I think about the ad industry, I say “all hat and no cattle”. Million-dollar machines and platforms and UI’s don’t help small businesses. It is just another thing to learn and take time away from making money and running your business.
This is why we built this company. Everyone here, like our Head of Product Justin Lockwood and our CTO Bill Rose have all built and started businesses. We have put our own money in, raised from friends and family, and are now turning to the Start Engine community to help us grow and get Arrow into the hands of millions of businesses. We are the best kind of start-up, one with a great idea, great product, and an experienced team who knows how to start and scale a real business that serves customers and makes money.
Along the way, we had to learn some things. For example, that new technology is great but a lot of people are feeling technology fatigue. Like, “do I really need another password or a new platform to log in?” The answer is “no”. Technology has to be accessible and it has to be easy. So we built a browser extension and it packs a punch!
We believe in hard work and that a strong economy creates opportunities like education, better health care and stronger families and communities. We believe that participating in the digital economy is a right and a requirement for everyone. We believe that technology needs to be affordable.
We hope you share these values and if you do, you are our kind of people. Please consider supporting our company.
If you have any questions at all, drop us an email on the site, and let’s set up a time to chat.
From my desk to yours,
