Cloudriven’s First Year Was Full of Success

Cloudriven was founded in the beginning of September 2012. We’ve enjoyed a year full of cheerful client meetings, prolific product development, creative ideation and hardworking customer service. To celebrate our birthday we gathered together some of the best successes and moments from our first year of activity.

When we started the company in the Autumn 2012, we promised that the financial year of 2012 will be profitable and the cash flow positive. Our accountant has confirmed that we’ve kept our promise. Although the figures have not yet been audited, it seems that on H1/2013 the comparable revenue and profit continued to grow. This is a good starting point for this Autumn and next year.
