Over the past 8 years, millions of people across every imaginable industry have used Basecamp to manage over 8 million projects. In total, they’ve shared over 275 million to-dos, messages, and files.

What started as a side project in 2004 has become the world’s most popular web-based project management and collaboration app. 96% of our customers say they’d recommend Basecamp to a friend, colleague, or co-worker.

The Basecamp business is booming.

But too much good news is a formula for complacency. And honestly, we have grown a bit complacent.

That’s about to end.

We’ve gone back to the basics and made them better, faster, clearer, easier, and smarter.

In early 2012, 37signals will introduce Basecamp Next and change the way people collaborate all over again.

We’ll initially be launching by invite only. If you’d like a chance at an invite, visit the teaser page, scroll down, and enter your email address at the bottom.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing more details about Basecamp Next. Stay tuned.
