We’re not exactly very verbose when it comes to public communication – it’s part of philosophy at gfnork, because we rather build than babble, but nonetheless we’ve decided to make our first blog that contains more than the usual gfnork we’d like to share with you.
Currently we are expanding our business from a label that we used to aggregate stuff that we liked to do in our spare time to something that we feel is a little more serious in terms of long-term goals we’re hoping to achieve.
We have expanded our team, which consists now of four people: Marcus, Patrick, Thomas & Qiong. You can find more information regarding that, including pictures of the team on our website.
Why are we doing this? Well we felt that we needed a more structured way to attack the projects that we were envisioning previously. So we needed a team that would cooperate under the label gfnork in order to realize new and continue to develop ongoing projects that we liked.
We also needed some funds that would help us broaden the scope of our products, so we decided to apply for seed funding to one of our future products at the European Space Agency Business Incubation Center (ESA BIC). Thankfully and fortunately we have received confirmation on the funding by ESA BIC and are taking this as a major next step for our company and a major boost to our motivation for this specific project.
While we have shifted most of our focuses to this exciting new product, we want to ensure that we’ll keep our users on support for our existing products, specifically the Ultimate Download App that we have on the Windows Phone Store. At this point we also want to shout out our thanks for the 260.000 Downloads and large amounts of reviews, feedback and support we receive from our users all around the world.
Thanks & Best Regards
the gfnork team
PS: We’re hiring.
