Here’s the look back of Florian:
GoEuro has come a long way since our early days at betahaus and we are very thankful for all their help getting us off the ground. We began over there as 5 people (and one adorable dog) and we’ve already grown to a team of almost 60 people from 25 countries. We’re so proud of everything we’ve accomplished thus far and it’s crazy to look back and see how much we’ve developed.
Since our initial funding, additional support and investments have helped us go live in 7 countries! With Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy and BeNeLux all in the bag, we’re well on track to racking up another 3 by the end of the year.
Rapid expansion meant that our first office space was quickly too small for us and we had to get a second space. Even since then, we’ve reunited the team in our first spot but not without taking over the whole floor. And believe it or not, our new/old space is, once again, already staffed to capacity. But that hasn’t stopped us from constantly adding fresh new faces to the team dynamic.
This year, we’ve had the chance to do some pretty sweet stuff that’s been covered all over the place from newspapers to radio shows and even TV. Our Beer Price Index broke down the prices of beer all over the world to find out the cheapest spots to grab a cold one. We also got the chance to team up with our friends at Lovoo to make this awesome guide to Europe’s flirtiest hotspots. Lovoo’s a great new dating app that’s got people all over the world chatting, mingling and getting their flirt on. They helped us put together a handy comprehensive guide to the continent’s best pick up spots, from Paris’ Le Pont des Arts to Antwerp’s Diamond District. On top of that, it even tells you which nationalities you’ve got the best chances of scoring with. Did you know that Spanish women are the most desired in Europe?
It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come in such a short time, but we’ll always look back fondly on our days at betahaus. It was an incredible inspiration and we hope one day to become as much of an institution in Berlin as the coworking space has become in Berlin’s startup scene. We’re especially looking forward to Betahaus’ birthday and celebrating with the staff as we revisit our memories.
