The SoapBox Story
In 2010, Brennan and Graham started building a feedback system for Ryerson University that they called SoapBox. It wasn’t long before requests started pouring in from other companies that wanted to use SoapBox with their teams. 🙌 Over the next five years, they bootstrapped the company to 12 employees.
That’s when things changed.
SoapBox was helping 50 enterprises give a voice to close to half a million employees. But something was missing. That’s when they decided to rebuild SoapBox from the ground up. And that’s when the vision for the SoapBox we know today was born.
The vision that focuses on serving the people leader. The vision that is committed to making it easier to be a manager. The vision that helped us to raise our first round of financing in 2015 💰. The vision that still guides us to this day.
