How our story started
They say, “the journey is the gift”. The wiser we get, the more we tend to agree with that statement. That’s why every now and then, we take our time to reflect on past experiences and decisions that made us what we are today. From the first projects to that massive pinboard we bought and never really used, the ugly carpet in the meeting room, and our first participation in a hackathon as a team. Today we’re sharing parts of our story with the world so that it may inspire others to take the step and follow their dreams.
Our company journey started sometime in February 2020…
We could not seem to agree on the exact day this happened, so we just settled it on the 18th of February.
That’s when Sorel and Victor combined their efforts, skills and know-how to create Inventiff. They both had accumulated experience in tech and start-up environments beforehand, learning from mistakes and adjusting their approaches for this one.
From the very start, we knew that if we over-delivered, invested time and resources in project success, worked to provide high-level service at all times and set up a reliable system for consistently growing businesses online, we could turn this into a success story.
We started without an investment fund, relying on sales and project delivery to survive and scale. At this time, the capacity to deliver fast was crucial for company survival, let alone growth. Yet we were all unwilling to sacrifice product quality for faster deliveries.
Fortunately, we understood early enough that client satisfaction was vital for creating a reputation that would affect the scale and quality of future prospects. However, although beautiful, our growth was not yet progressing as we’d like it to.
Fast forward to March 2020. The pandemic hits, and the whole world is pushed into a transition towards online for the sake of public health. The world is becoming increasingly digitised, driving the demand for web and software development through the roof.
At the same time, we had been pushed by circumstances towards remote work. Being a small team, with collaborative processes still falling into place, this came as quite a challenge we had to work our way through.
Compelled to adapt fast, we raised up to the expectations, extended our team and became able to take on bigger projects with provide shorter delivery times. Our processes have been refined, our collaborative skills have been honed, and our experience helped us to avoid mistakes better.
Four years, about 10.000 cups of coffee, and 50+ completed projects later, we’re still honing our craft, working to become better people and professionals. We’re now a more efficient team able to deliver higher quality, meet faster deadlines and create high-quality products that make a real impact in businesses across the globe. Yet truth be told, we can never run out of room for improvement.
As the story unfolds, the journey rewards us with more experience. We learn from all experiences, keeping our focus on continuous improvement and growth as we did from the very start. And like we always did along the way, we keep moving forward, working together to make the world of tomorrow a better place.
Best part? We’re only getting started.
There are still many more challenges to overcome, adventures to live through, and empty pages in our book yet to be written.
