This year, Pro-Blockboarders have much to be thankful for. Read a few thoughts from our team!

A Note from our Co-Founder, Matt Wasserlauf

Not only is Thanksgiving my favorite holiday, for me, it’s a way of life. So much of my happiness is derived from the appreciation of what I have and I know I have so much.

Blockboard, a company I co-founded with Tarun Yadav, is among those things I am most grateful for.

I am thankful for our clients. Since we started this company in 2019, our clients have been first and foremost in our minds and our vision. This year has been both challenging and gratifying for us. I thank each and every client partner who has worked with us in partnership as we together grow business and build a future.

I am thankful for our Pro-Blockboarders! To work at such an amazing company with an extraordinary group of people is very special. Our Blockboard team is on a mission, rooted in Web3, that has a purpose I am so grateful to be a part of and to do it with such a special group of people is why I am so grateful on this Thanksgiving holiday.
