Our slogan is 'Technology for Social Justice'
Our annual report is public as we are a registered not-for-profit & charitable organisation. When I started at Infoxchange 3 ½ years ago our financial turnover was around $3M/yr (after 25 years), we are now looking at around $10M. This growth is for a number of reasons but mainly through a mix of technological improvements (paying down tech debt and technical modernisation) and very positive feedback / recognition from clients that have spread us through word of mouth, advocacy groups etc... We're also winning quite a number of awards including this years 'Google Impact Challenge' amongst others.
I do apologise for our awfully dated website which is shortly to be replaced early next month, while it may look like we perhaps do not practise what we preach so to speak I can assure you that it is, by quite some considerable distance the most neglected part of the org and as you can probably guess I'm quite embarrassed of it: https://www.infoxchange.net.au/resources/annual-reports
Around a year ago I gave a brief talk around my/our journey there over the past few years, while a lot of the content was spoken you can find the slides on my blog here: https://smcleod.net/talk-24-months/
If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer them for you.
I'm thinking about the possibility of looking for investments. It seems that accepting an investment would force me to give up on the kind of things I want my company to do, what are your thoughts about accepting external investments, was your company bootstrapped or it took investors money?
In my case I want the company to give all its profits to other non-profit organisations, so quite a hard sell for a possible investor.
