Description
After 6 months of awesome work with them as a Web Agency, they offered us a position in their start-up and we took the risk to close our agency to be a part of this great adventure.
The challenge was to create a messaging platform of a new "genre" and, for that purpose, to use a lot of new technologies like cloud micro-services and "universal" language.
Sadly, the project didn't take off fast enough and we had to reduce the costs to get a chance to find the right audience.

With two associates, we created an open source development company, offering technical analysis & strategy, quality & performance based PHP development, and IT consultancy.
The company grew fast and after 5 years we already had more than 30 customers and 10 employees.
Our vision was always to provide quality against quantity, so we decide to focus our work on helping a few start-ups instead of taking more projects.
After a while, one of those start-ups asked us to join them for good and that's what we did.
