Aspire’s Next Chapter

It’s been a very rewarding 3 years at Aspire. We’ve evolved as a company, but the mission has always been the same – to help companies build a better workplace.

Since our inception, we have explored many ways to grow. We’ve raised over $1M of investment, grew annual gross revenue to over $1M, and worked with some amazing clients in the DC area – including Uber, JLL, Monumental Sports and many of the fastest-growing tech companies in the Greater DC and Boston areas. Alongside many of you, we’ve built a company that we’re very proud of.

To reach the next stage of growth, we have explored a number of opportunities, including raising a round of venture capital and partnering with more established firms. In this process – an exciting opportunity has come up from one of our partners and early investors, and we believe this is the right step forward for Aspire and our team.

On March 15th, Aspire will become a part of the DC-based, professional services firm, Raffa P.C. Raffa provides expertise and superior service across a variety of essential and interrelated financial, technology and consulting competencies.

Aspire’s and Raffa’s leadership team believe that this is a perfect partnership. We will be able to dramatically amplify the impact that Aspire can have in the defining the future of work, and Aspire is a natural addition to Raffa’s suite of offerings, helping its clients build a better workplace.

We are excited to help develop the firm’s employee engagement services and technology products. Raffa is a catalyst for positive systemic change in enterprises, and Aspire is looking forward to joining forces with their talented teams.

Although our startup journey is coming to an end, our whole team is excited for our next chapter in Aspire’s story. On behalf of the entire Aspire team – thank you for all that you’ve done. Our services, our products and our growth are directly because of the great community of advisors, investors and supporters we have around us. Thank you.
