Mistakes: we all make them.

Our Mistakes

We’re building the future and we need your help to get it right. This means we’re going to make some mistakes and we’re going to love them. We’re not coming to you with a product that is complete. Instead we’re hoping to engage you. We have big things we want to achieve and we’ll only be able to get there with your help. As long as our mistakes are cheap and don’t hurt anybody, we value them. We try something. We ask what you think. We iterate. We try again. We learn. Iterate again. This is how we evolve quickly. We’ve gathered some stories about mistakes we’ve made over the years, most of which have contributed to a better Clover. Of course there are also mistakes that are just…mistakes. We blog about those too : )

We’re testing new platters at CloverKND. Reception has been extremely positive. Maybe better than what we saw with the original meatball test.
