Before I get to to actual matter of this post, let me just say: The Boys are back in Town! The Silicon Valley trip has been a great success in terms of networking, coaching and getting to know the local vibe of the worlds biggest tech-scene. We see it pretty clear that we will be back there soon, but until then we still have some milestones ahead of us. There will be a more detailed summary of the trip here sometime 🙂
Until then – Good news: We decided to move our office (at least for a while). We went a little further south and stranded on Tenerife, a small island westside Africa’s coast. And at first it seemed like a blunt idea – It’s way more expensive than our office in Hamburg, the wifi is crap and there isn’t a single Startup, co-working office or VC within a few thousand miles. Maybe not the best circumstances for a tech-startup. On the flipside however, we have an amazing landscape everywhere around us, can chose between 29 or 31°C pool-temperature, go to the gym, have full catering included and – oh yeah – one of Europe’s biggest Waterparks around the corner. So basically it’s like working for Google – on an island! Due to the additional cost it’s not yet the no.1 choice for a bootstrapped company, but surely we all appreciate working in an environment like this.
Plans to improve the local infrastructure have already been made – And more importantly, we started planning our own waterpark – this will be another startup, sometime in the future 🙂
