Hello New York

October 6th, 2015

As a startup company, there’s always that slight sting called ambition. It makes sense right? Most startups probably started because of it. To maintain the quality of your product, that desire to achieve should be kept on a high level. I believe that we reached a new level of ambition today. The so called fruit of our labor. As of today we’re a company with some international flavor.

Hello, Awkward New York.

Awkward New York is represented by Frank Kuo, with whom we’ve had a good relationship since 2011. Frank delivered. And because he did, the title of Awkward was granted. As the new Product Manager of our first branch office. Immediately shopping for offices, he told us WeWork on Madison Avenue was the one. WeWork is a coworking space that has an amazing community which allows Awkward to be surrounded by some of the most innovative startups in the world.

We can’t wait to immerse ourselves in the vibrant streets of New York. We’ve chosen this particular area because we want to work with startups that are proud of their community and it’s our hope we’ll fit right in with some Dutch influences. Its unique pool of talent, startups and inspiring companies will help us expand the office and build a great team over time. We look forward to work with new people to create amazing ventures with. Let’s build a collaboration between two different worlds.
