We're excited to announce that yerdle has been chosen as a featured innovator for Umpqua Bank's Catalyst series. Umpqua is an amazing community focused bank -- they are about customer happiness and highly service oriented. Given that their customer mission falls in line with ours, we were delighted to learn that yerdle would be highlighted in their Catalyst Series--a program on companies, which are breaking the mold and changing the way business is done. Launching on September 3rd, Umpqua will be running a 9-week long interactive installation in their SF flagship branch at 450 Sansome Street featuring the yerdle story and community.
If you live in the Bay Area please join us on Wednesday, September 10th from 6 - 8PM for a special talk with Andy Ruben, yerdle co-founder and CEO.
