A Message From Our Co-Founder and CEO, Michael Seifert
Hello PublicSq. Community,
Two years ago, I felt a real sense of frustration as I witnessed corporation after corporation embrace far-left progressivism and corporate activism, hyper-politicizing the marketplace and alienating millions of Americans who embrace traditional American values in the process.
That frustration turned into a strong desire for a solution. That desire for a solution turned into an idea; an idea for a community of consumers and businesses that would embrace pro-life, pro-family, and pro-freedom values; a marketplace where pro-American consumers could know with a blessed assurance that they’re not spending money with businesses that will use their money against them.
Now, two years later, that idea has turned into PublicSq, the nation’s largest marketplace of values-aligned businesses and consumers to ever exist. This platform and like-minded community is the solution we’ve hungered for as a nation.
In less than 11 months since our national launch on July 4th of 2022, we have grown faster and advanced further than anyone thought possible in this timeline. The readiness of millions of Americans to partner with us has validated our mission and we learned this past week just how strong the desire for a parallel economy truly is.
After a week of exponentially higher levels of traffic than we’ve ever received, a few of our tools failed under the pressure and have caused delays and outages for many new and existing members on the PublicSq. platform. While we certainly take this as a resounding confirmation that the mission of our marketplace is resonating with the American people, we apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused. The app and website are currently up and running but we’re continuing to make improvements over the next few hours that will increase our confidence in the scalability of our services.
We have devoted our lives over the past 24 months to restoring our country through the power of commerce. We have experienced a great deal of challenges and will undoubtedly experience more but I can confidently say, without any reservation, that we are just getting started. We’re grateful you’re on the journey with us.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to updating you with more information.
Onward and upward,
Founder & CEO
