The name "Relume" is born.
To relight or rekindle (a light, flame, etc.)
To do this they would have to build a company that would be profitable in its first year. Not the next Uber of *insert clever idea*.
“Relume was an opportunity for us to build a profitable business, not a startup that bleeds cash, whilst doing what we love to do. It also allows us to learn about all types of businesses and the problems they deal with. These are all opportunities that we could potentially solve for in the future. For now, our goal is simple, we want to build a kickass business which means we really want our customers and the Webflow community to succeed too.”
