A Farewell Note

Lupn was a civic engagement SaaS platform launched as a pilot test in April of 2017, in the City of Glendale, CA. Our goal was to connect local government, local merchants and residents by aggregating and curating content. After the pilot phase, Glendale became a customer and continued offering Lupn to its residents until January of 2020, when Lupn ceased its services.

I deeply appreciate the support of the team at Management Services and Economic Development Departments in the City of Glendale. I want to express my deepest gratitude for those who had worked with me and helped making this dream come true, Anne Pereira, Matthew Drake, Jonathan Haun, Rafael Mendes H. Perez, Thiago Ferreira, Tiffany Zamora and Himanshi Ahir. Thank you for the family and friends who literally bet on me by investing on Lupn. A special thanks to our users, Glendale residents who embraced our ideas and used the mobile app. And to my mentors, Jim McCarthy, Stephanie Schus, Ed Lee, Ron Zayas, Dana Rosselli. Thank you SHE Ventures in Tech and Bixel Exchange team for all the incredible support and guidance you had provided. And to the ones who inspires me every day – my husband and kids.

If anyone has any questions, comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
