In the Winter of 2016, Alex & Kyle McCarthy had an idea to develop a mobile app for the cheer community. After playing around with some ideas, Alex and Kyle met with Jeremy Wong and Dean Grey to develop an idea they would later call CheerLife.
The first working prototype wasn't stellar, but the potential was there. From that vision, came the desire to develop new and better features that would be able to provide tools for gym owners to improve their business needs while also providing a social platform for all cheerleaders, coaches, parents and fans across the world.
A few months and a lot of hard work later, we were able to launch a beta test version of CheerLife to a few programs across the world. We were able to test some of our features and see what we needed to develop in order to fully launch our platform. CheerLife raised a seed round of financing through friends and family to allow us to grow our development, features, company and brand.
In early 2018, CheerLife was able to create a team of passionate and experienced people that helped take us to the next level. From internal team members to manage customer service to positions like CMO, our team was developed strategically and allowed us the ability to partner with multiple brands across the cheer and dance industry.
Our team is continuing to grow, as is our following and users on Cheerlife! All of this was an amazing learning experience and we are grateful to all of the community members who joined us since the beginning of this journey. From 2017-2019 brought many updates, and we look to generate more with this new opportunity.
Without our community, we would not be who we are today. Reach out to find out more and join us in continuing to make CheerLife great.
