We’re celebrating here at mySugr and we invite you to join us! In 2020, we reached a huge milestone. Three million registered mySugr users worldwide!
2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but let’s take time to reflect on some positives. While the COVID-19 pandemic put our health at risk, it also provided us with an opportunity to invest more time in ourselves. For people with diabetes, this meant becoming more engaged with their diabetes management than ever before and gaining a better understanding of their diabetes. At mySugr, we’re overjoyed to have been with you every step of the way. During the pandemic, we decided to offer mySugr PRO* for free, providing people with more freedom and more control when it comes to their diabetes, despite all the craziness going on.
The fact that over 3 million of you have decided to join us and put your trust in mySugr makes us want to open all of our office windows and burst into song. It’s our pleasure to accompany you throughout your diabetes journey and with so many registered users worldwide, we’re well on our way to making diabetes suck less!
We love you!
Where did it all start?
Back in 2012, our four fabulous founders Frank, Frederik, Michael, and Gerald (otherwise known as “The Fantastic Four”) founded mySugr in Vienna, Austria. Their goal was simple: make diabetes suck less! But having a simple goal doesn’t necessarily mean that things will always run smoothly.
When mySugr first came to be, the world of diabetes therapy was a pretty sorry state of affairs. Long feedback loops, crummy therapy experiences, overwhelming and confusing language being used to talk to patients... Yikes! Our founders knew that there were big challenges ahead. But did that phase them? No way Jose!
Look at us now!
Jump forward to 2021 and we’re now celebrating 3 million registered users worldwide! Not only that, but we’ve achieved some pretty wonderful things along the way. Things like launching our very own Bolus Calculator in the EU, launching the mySugr Bundle in the US, and achieving a 4.6 star user experience rating (our average app rating in App Store and Google Play). We’re so proud and appreciative of our amazing founders and our ever growing team made up of superstars.
But what’s all that success without someone to share it with? We do all that we do for you! The user. And now we’re lucky enough to have 3 million of you by our side.
What does the future hold?
After a year like 2020, it’s more difficult than ever to try and predict the future. Who knows where we’ll be a few weeks from now, let alone years. But one thing is for sure: we will never give up on our mission. We aim to make diabetes suck less for as many people around the world as possible and we’re always thinking of new ways to do so. We want to continue to help you with your diabetes management and surprise you with new and exciting things to keep you motivated throughout your journey.
No one knows what the next few years will bring but here at mySugr we’re optimistic, we’re hopeful, and we’re excited!
See you at 4 million!
