At the webinar, Christian Walther, will be sharing the experiences Ooono has gained, from startup-idea to where the company is now – a journey where the Ooono has matured quickly. An entrepreneurial journey of eternal problems and challenges in the pursuit of growth.
During the last two years, Ooono has really accelerated their business. With acceleration comes growth which means that everything and everyone must keep up with the growth, such as the organization, production and raising capital. It is an eternal balancing act.
One of the challenges Ooono had was supporting a radically growing number of users, and therefore Ooono had to look into scaling its IT-department. Therefore, Christian will give insights to Ooono’s decision of eventually moving IT-resources back in-house to better control the critical development tasks of the app and backend IT-systems.

– Ooono’s quest for raising capital
– Scaling the business – from a few employees to aprox. 30 within two years
– Production and scaling the IT department – moving IT resources back in-house
