Invoicing, quoting and estimating app for the trade
Where it all began
Zoltan, our CTO and one of the founders probably cutting some early code for the early versions of Powered Now. We all had other jobs, so this was very much an idea at the time.
The first meeting!
The early team got together in Albert Cottage on the Osborne House estate on the Isle of Wight. Amazingly this is where the project timeline first appeared on a flip chart. We wanted to build something that would be better than just another invoice app!
Beta launch, in London
On the Southbank of the Themes, drinking something to toast the first beta release. Gergo, Zoltan, Andrew, sometime in late 2012.
Company boat trip
The first Hungarian office
We rented a few desks in a cool co-working space in Budapest, drank them out of coffee, got kicked out…
We entered a Startup Rally
We decided it would be cool to enter a startup rally! It was! We were part of 20 startups chosen for The Next Web Amsterdam, we won!
TNW Startup Trophy
We think this might be the coolest trophy, of all time!
Welcome back from TNW
Ben had a surprise when he got home from TNW!
Filming our Crowdfunding video
We raised two rounds of Crowdfunding to continue the project. This is Will, a very talented film maker managing to make us look good.
A photoshoot with the Times
The Times newspaper did a whole page article on us, this is a picture of the photo shoot that accompanied it. The hardest part was finding somewhere suitable, huge apologies to the team working on the site behind us!
Fundraising is hard, so we had some cake to celebrate.
