Zapproved’s CEO explains why she doesn’t want to be a three-percenter in this article in Oregon Business.

“After hearing a lifetime’s worth of no’s, I’m proud to say the naysayers were wrong and Zapproved is successful.

Fun fact: Our software reaches one out of every six employees in the Fortune 500.
