Proudest moments of 2013
It’s that time of the year again where we as a team reflect on the positive differences we’ve made in the world, personally and professionally. 2013 has been a year of growth on all fronts both for us and our clients. We’ve built beautiful apps, launched successful result-oriented digital campaigns, and released 10+ issues of our interactive magazines. Overall, it’s been a successful year with a few recurring themes that we’d like to point out today.
It’s been an inspirational year for us, led by the brilliant people we met in 2013. The young and motivated geeks and future businessmen and businesswomen from this year’s App Challenge, the determined doctors who share our passion for M-Health, and the marketers and professionals we met on events such as ArabNet, MEcom, and WebIT.
Startappz started out with a small number of key people just two years ago, today, 50+ people call Startappz home, a fast growing number from last year’s family of 15, and we’re constantly looking out for best talent to join our family.
It’s been truly insane. 2013 saw the metamorphosis of Startappz as a full fledged company. What started out as an accelerator for mobile developers and designers in 2012 is now an active industry player in Jordan, Egypt, Uae, Usa, and Ksa, with clients in telecommunication and smart governments in GCC, to mention a few highlights from 2013:
- We released 11 applications on Android, iOS, & Window 8.
- We had our apps downloaded 2,000,000 times.
- We made 1,000,000+ USD in Revenue.
Out with the old in with the new, 2013 has been a year of focus for Startappz. Today, we have three main areas of focus as a company, we want to design and develop the apps everyone wants to talk about, we want to give voice to our clients through result-oriented digital ad campaigns, and lastly, we want to provide interactive content that’ll change the way people experience magazines.
Last but not least, Energy has been the prominent keyword for 2013 and the upcoming 2014. This year, we’re excited about a number of things, we’re excited about helping out governments get smarter, we’re excited about creating cool apps for even cooler platforms such as our upcoming Google Glass app, as well as our 70+ apps and 4 interactive magazines in the pipeline for 2014.
