It’s a new year in the channel

Written by Andrea Lee

January 13, 2022

Looking back at the last two years of growth in the channel, we’ve all learned to work in new ways and to tackle unusual challenges — with minimal clarity and far too much uncertainty. January is always a good time for fresh starts, new perspectives and to finally get around to setting some goals.

With that being said, there’s plenty to be optimistic about in 2022… especially when it comes to the innovative ideas coming out of the tech space.

Cheers to a new year in the channel 🥂
