What started as an idea in 2007 is now a Budapest-based company with a fantastic team of 4 enthusiastic people, helped by some 20 freelancers all over the world (including the UK, USA, Germany, Philippines and beyond), powered by more than 60,000 clients from over 80 countries in the world: Arboreus has just been given Deloitte’s prestigious Rising Star Award as the 4th fastest growing tech start-up in Central Europe.
Arboreus as a Rising Star
Truth be told: we are extremely proud and honored to have been given this award, based on our 295% growth rate over the past 3 years, purely based on hard work and organic growth without any state, government or EU funds involved. We remember the time when both founders had their full-time day jobs and started working on their online training, e-learning and test preparation idea as a “moonlighting” project. We spoke with each other on the phone probably more than with our spouses, and weekends were often spent on scoping, design reviews, copy writing and project coordination instead of enjoying some nice Belgian beers. Looking back, it was worth every second of our time.
Today, still with a super-efficient team of 4 and based in a single-room office, we stick to our business principles of being lean, keeping an extreme focus on customer satisfaction and user experience, and we always remember those who have inspired and helped us. We would not be here if not for all those who have helped us on the way, especially including Ben, Zoltán, Dávid, Chris and countless other contractors, friends and freelancers.
If you are interested in more details, please get in touch as we are always open to talk about our experience, ideas and projects.
