We wish you all the best for the upcoming holidays and lots of joyful discoveries! 2014 was a great year for us: We were given prizes, trophies, and awards. But we also have lost and had to fight the one or the other little problems.
Our first employee
One of the highlights during the past few weeks was, when Raphael Seher, our very first employee, has signed in. Over the next few weeks, we will hire one more developer and offer an internship for a business student. We know one thing for certain: A world-class team is in the making!
The small team of two founders will soon be a company with five jobs. Our incubator, build!, already gave us a new office that is twice as large. Although there are lots of things left to do, we will close the office today, the rest of the work will happen in our home offices.
- The website needs an overhaul.
- Folders will be sent to print.
- The positioning of the product must be sharpened and backed with stories.
- Manuals and demo kits need to go into production.
- The employee onboarding must be prepared.
- Some bookkeeping needs to be done.
- The work on the product itself goes on.
We won’t get bored for sure – everything will happen at a much slower pace over Christmas.
Danke, Merci, Tack & Thank You!
Finally, we are grateful for this year and would like to say thank you to a few people and institutions:
- Thanks to Bank Austria. Without being awarded the BA-Kunstpreis 2013 in February, we would not be where we are. The price was not only the seed capital for our company but gave us an enormous amount of motivation.
- Thanks to the incubator build!, that made the start so much easier.
- Thanks to the Futurezone, which awarded us the title “Start-up of the Year 2014”. This is incredible motivation for 2015.
- Thank you to the many friends of xamoom, who brought us with their votes into many jury decisions.
- Thanks to the many good friends, who always stood by us with support and advice & assistance.
Thank you, you are the best and without all of you, we would all be half as good.
