Innovative ideas and technology are the foundation of every new business, but what makes yours a disruptive startup?
We have already shared with you the numbers related to our company growth in the last two years. This time, we want to talk about a very special recognition we have received from the UK Trade & Investment: the Business Development Green Light for the Global Entrepreneur Programme (GEP).
In the quest for a worldwide business growth, UK is Buzzoole elected outpost. In February we have inaugurated our new offices in the heart of London, in April we were selected to participate in Millennial 20/20 Summit by The Unilever Foundry and we are among the official sponsors for The Drum Social Buzz Awards 2016. More importantly, we have run influencer marketing campaigns for clients such as Mastercard and Groupon.
Since GEP’s team works solely with entrepreneurs who have exceptional skills, technologies and Intellectual Property from all over the world, we are even more enthused over this new achievement and for being acknowledged as a disruptive startup!
