There's still some disagreement as to whether an actual napkin was involved or not but, regardless, RINGR officially began in May of 2014 over chicken sandwiches, mac and cheese, and Dr Pepper. Crazy concept met creative solution that day and—within weeks—we had a lead investor, promotional materials, and plane tickets to several industry conferences.
The problem? We didn't have a product.
Six months of part-time research and development followed and, by January 2015, RINGR's iOS beta released on the App Store. We also joined the OCEAN accelerator in Cincinnati, Ohio and jumped full-time into making our dream a reality. And now, it is.
To date, our users have interviewed Emmy winners, New York Times best-selling authors, and CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. They have talked with athletes and artists and actors. They have produced content about food and travel. About science and technology. About politics and religion. They've been heard on ESPN and NPR. In the United States, United Kingdom and scores of other countries.
At RINGR, we're creators, creating a platform to help other creators create. Like you. And you've been doing an incredible job. There's no doubt we're proud of how good you and your guests sound. But, honestly, we're most proud of the impact and influence you're having on the world around you.
