In case you missed it, we re-launched our platform on Product Hunt and were the No. 3 product of the day. Learn more about our recent release below.
Plural was featured in Built In NYCs Future 5 which every quarter features five early-stage tech companies, nonprofits or entrepreneurs in each of these hubs who just might be working on the next big thing.
