We don’t post that often: true. But we do like to share our experiences, successes and failures. The post below was written after Linkedin announced and congratulated me with “5 years working at WebComrades”.
When I googled “webcomrades” 5 years ago…there was about a handful of lost results, not even one full page on Google. I decided to name my first company WebComrades. Inspired by too many nightly Call of Duty sessions, most likely. Here’s my personal view on the first 5 years at WebComrades.
The Belgian press is also noticing our efforts in the U.S. on bike share and more:
As requested by many, here’s…
– the full page article in Gazet van Antwerpen on Friday October, 4th, 2013. (download)
– the article on Bike apps (and more) in De Nieuwe Antwerpenaar (link)
– the article on Bay Area Bike in the San Francisco Examiner (link)
– the article on New York City Bike in Transportation Nation (link)

Three years after launching the company, we’re catching press in New York, Chicago and last week: San Francisco & Palo Alto aka Bay Area just to name a few. That’s obviously great news and a relentless team effort. A few days after the publication below we got a call from local Antwerp press too. It seems you need to score overseas to disrupt the local media overhere.
So it’s with pride I’m sharing this press article in the San Francisco Examiner (web) and paper. As a personal note to all entrepreneurs out there who got virtually kicked, bashed and looked-down by the big boys:
Saying NAY to naysayers, does pay off.
(And thanks a lot Filip De Clerck & Elisabeth van Nueten for the San Francisco snapshots!)
Another secret revealed! Last summer young dog & student Stijn Adams worked for us on a mobile Spotify application. He’s graduating from the University of Leuven (KUL) and was asked by Knack to testify on how things work at WebComrades. He talks about his traineeship and the culture at the office.
The three-page article was published in Knack’s annual Go Startersgids 2013 and even our Student-of-the-Year award was mentioned once again. Good vibes!
