Thanks to you.
November 9, 2023
As we reflect on the last two years, we are filled with gratitude for the unwavering support and enthusiasm from our incredible user community. Your engagement and feedback have been the cornerstone of our progress.
We embarked on this journey with a mission to improve the way AI and computer vision technologies are tested, making computer vision API development easier for all. Achieving a top 15 product on Product Hunt was a milestone that validated our efforts and fueled our ambition. The number of you who reached out to point out all the things you liked (and didn't) about Quark has been deeply appreciated.
Every startup journey is filled with learning, and ours was no exception. We learned the importance of agility, the power of community, and the ever-present need to adapt to the technological landscape's rapid changes. These lessons will be invaluable as we move forward to new challenges and opportunities. Despite our achievements and the active use of our platform, the decision to pull the plug was ultimately made. This decision comes after much deliberation, analysis, and consideration of the future trajectory of our company. It is a tough choice, but one that we believe is necessary to make way for future innovations and strategic pivots.
We are immensely proud of what we've built together and are optimistic about the future. The end of one chapter often signals the beginning of another. We look forward to taking the lessons learned from this experience to build new solutions that will continue to serve the robust community of you who, like us, are building in the ML and AI space.
To each and every one of you who joined us on this journey, we say thank you. Thank you for your trust, your time, and your insights.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Jake and Kevin
