GO GO FRIENDS
There are constantly held English Speaking Courses in all departments for the better understanding of our client’s needs. Also every day we do sports lessons together. Our team actively participates in international exhibitions, conferences and trainings, constantly improving professional and communicative skills and also increasing qualification by attending IT courses. Furthermore, we participated in Hackathon and Demo Day for Ukrainian start-ups as mentors for start-up-ers.
Constant client’s demand for the development and experience with creating our project led us to the idea of building up a development department of GoFriends. The company was divided into 2 departments: development and social media marketing. During the 3 months we came to the market of the USA and Europe. It was a new season for the company: helping start-ups to develop their vision in IT through our experience in creating the own product.
There are 12 specialists in the company and successfully launched 8 new projects in the main industries: sports, health, beauty, e-commerce.
Our mission is: we help business to become outstanding by implementing modern IT solutions.
GOFRIENDS CAME TO USA MARKET
It was a good year. The company had 350 customers in 7 countries and 35 new partners. Constant client’s demand for improving services and adding the new technologies led us to the point where we needed to implement new functionality: feedback in trip advisor, checker of advertisement’s view, the loyalty program for authorization – a system of accumulative points. Automated the firmware, began to work with the city’s advertising platforms: squares, universities, parks etc. Development department increased to 5 programmers and company came to the US market.

FOUNDATION OF THE COMPANY
This year is the year of the foundation of the company, the formation of values and mission. There was an idea to connect institutions: cafes, restaurants, fitness clubs with their clients in social networks through wi-fi. The company was launched with 4 people: 2 programmers and 2 entrepreneurs. We believed that we can make the world better due to the innovative product GoFriends Wi-Fi. The product started with the basic functions: advertising on the page when entering the Wi-Fi system, automatic posting to Facebook, Twitter, Vkontakte and collecting user data (large data). When we came and offered our services, everyone looked at us, because we were like aliens – advertising in social networks on Wi-Fi was an absolutely new thing! GoFriends Wi-Fi is free Wi-Fi in institutions that are authorized through social networks. In the first year we entered the market in three countries: Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Belarus.
And we created our mission:
We are a team of experts who are helping entrepreneurs to develop their business using unique marketing technologies to make our city better.
