After participating in a mentoring program during the spring with Design Terminal, Happy at Work has decided to recently open an office in Budapest which will be a strategic hub for the company. Happy at Work were also one of the startups in the program with the fastest recorded growth and even won the BrainBar Blastoff contest in Budapest, with a prize of € 150,000 worth of investment offer.
–Thanks to the mentoring program and with the combination of a strong team effort, we now have an amazing start here in Budapest. We want to continue what we have started in Sweden and take our vision of creating a more sustainable work environment further out to the rest of the world. Budapest is a growing business region and we can reach more from here, says André Francois, CEO at Happy at Work.
Happy at Work opened their doors in Budapest in August with two employees and together with their CEO, André Francois.
–We now have nine extremely engaged and committed team members in Sweden. If it was not for them, I would not have made this move (to be based in Budapest) so early. The company was only founded 1.5 years ago but since we are completely digital and have a lot of technical infrastructure, it makes it much easier for us to expand.
Happy at Work is a startup participation in the 2.5 year process of the business incubator of Kronoberg county in Sweden.
