Looking back at 2012

Jan 7, 2013


Goldenberry ended 2012 on a high note, with revenues 70% higher than in the previous year. We also had our first non-founding partner join the organization  and we opened our first office overseas, in London.

The company derived most of its revenue from long-term relations with strategic clients, including ones in retail banking, capital markets and private healthcare. During the course of the year Goldenberry evolved its "on demand" approach to offering consulting services, which allowed clients to obtain attractive pricing while significantly cutting time spent on sales efforts.

Revenue exceeded PLN 1.2m, compared with around 700k in 2011.

In September the team welcomed its first non-founding partner, Anna Wiącek. Anna has several years experience in large - scale operational and IT initiatives, both in Poland and in the UK. This broadens the range of potential initiatives that the company can target.

Correspondingly, just before the end of the year, Goldenberry took over the overall IT program management role at one of its clients. Further engagements of this kind are being discussed, as well as new business consulting tasks in the IT area, such as the introduction of service-oriented IT structures.

Other notable projects include a strategic cost cutting analysis at a financial institution, which created an interesting referral for the future, given the challenging macroeconomic outlook.

In line with its long term goals, in October Goldenberry opened its first overseas office in London. Business development in London is a high priority, therefore usually at least one of the founders will be personally located and working in the city.

As planned, Goldenberry has been eyeing closer cooperation with IT developers in order to be able to offer end-to-end solutions. Potential strategic partnerships in this area are currently being considered.

For 2013 the major goals include firmly establishing business in London as well as exploring other Western markets, developing business in Poland in line with increased team potential, and building closer relations with potential partners.
