2015 is slowly coming to an end, and while we are already fully focused on the future, let us reminisce about the year behind us. Maven7 has had an exciting year, packed with great challenges, great projects and even greater moments.
Strategically, 2015 was of key importance as the company received a set of Series A funding, making the total investment in Maven7 $2.3 million to date.
Team-wise, we have grown to 32 with the joining of 8 new mavens across our Development, Analyst, Sales and Marketing departments. With this expansion came an increase in our consumption as well. We have gulped over 11,000 liters of water, 10,300 cups of coffee and over 5,200 cups of tea. Oh and about 600 shakers of whey protein (gains gains gains!!!). Let's not talk about food, we eat a lot…especially when waiting for flights, all 56 of them this year.
We need to fuel ourselves though, this year we have passed the milestone of "220,000 work connections analyzed" with OrgMapper, and our Diktio Labs team was on a roll as well. They have analyzed over 20 million Facebook likes and 38 million Tweets to date. No wonder we need those 7,300 cups of coffee…
If you were to call us all at the same time, you could expect 8 iPhones and 24 Androids to ring, but call us before 7 P.M., otherwise we might be at an ice-hockey match or a pub quiz. Our analyst, Balázs attended 43 ice-hockey games this year and as far as our trivia-fondness goes, our quiz-enthusiasts answered over 2,000 questions (most of them correctly). We are a fun-loving bunch, but we also put great emphasis on supporting charities and other serious causes too, hence the heroes and heroines of the office donated 15 liters of blood this year.
All in all, 2015 was a challenging, but fun year in the life of Maven7 and we can hardly wait for the new year to come with everything it holds for us.
Happy Holidays and see you in 2016!
