Social Life Network CFO, Andy Rodosevich, estimates they have saved millions of dollars in development cost in 2016 and 2017 by spending the additional time and money on the development of their social network technology in 2014 and 2015. “We struggled with the decision early on, given the additional expenses and delays of going to market with many of our tech ideas, but decided in 2014 to spend more time on developing a technology platform so that could grow and change as fast as the U.S. and international community would need it to in the years to come,” said Rodosevich.
