    Hey InVision crew, thanks for taking the time to be with us today :-) My question is directed at Clark..

    Back at the founding stages of the company, did you envision (pun intended) so many acquisitions and partnerships to come? They've all seemed to manifest pretty organically within the core product, and I'm wondering how expected/deliberate this has been, or whether these opportunities have more or less been pursued on as you go?

      Hi Kieran, thanks so much -- it's so fun to take part in this. :)

      My expectations and goals for InVision have always been centered around up-leveling creative workflow for product design. That began with us pioneering the rapid-prototyping space, because frankly thats what I needed for my workflow as a designer. Next we moved on to collaboration, because again, we needed tools for better collaborative work as a team.

      Every subsequent move has been, in one sense, very organic because our approach has remained the same from the day we started. We ask ourselves "What are the biggest frustration and opportunities facing product teams today?". Then we ask "How can we create a solution that's not just marginally, but fundamentally better?". The acquisitions and partnerships you've seen so far today are a natural way for us to continue addressing these problems at increased speed and creativity -- and there's much more to come :)
