Our StoryIn the summer of 2013, Steve met Andreea while he was traveling in Denmark with his family. He immediately recognized that she both had talent and was smart. She was finishing her studies in Copenhagen, but was clearly many steps ahead of her peers, already working (more than one job while in school), with dev chops to boot. Over a few months, they talked, and Andreea agreed to come to work in the US for Steve’s company (Cobaltix) for a year. She was to lead the Development team at Cobaltix, a highly successful technology firm in San Francisco that Steve had started in 2003. At the same time, though, each had bigger plans.
Within months, as they gained trust in each other, they began talking about starting a company together. It could start by taking over Cobaltix internal development work (which had always been a sideline but enough work to get a small company going), then slowly moving into gaining new business as well.
Within months the company was started. With business from Cobaltix (quite a bit, as it turned out) clients begin to hear great things and the company was off and running. The company is now truly international, with clients in both the US and Europe. It exists as an entity in Copenhagen (and to answer the question you are surely thinking: costs are actually lower in Copenhagen than in San Francisco!). The owners (still just Steve and Andreea) enjoy great food, meeting incredibly interesting clients, and have a successful and growing company!
