There is no shortage of business success stories in the media. Some of them are allegedly overnight successes – one lucky individual who managed to transform an idea into a very profitable business. Other stories are closer to the truth: they bring up the highs and lows, the steps it took to get there.But it’s only a few of all those stories that mention one of the top ingredients for success: great teams. Which is why we landed our latest distinction and why we’re doing this article today.
The part with the good newsA few weeks ago, Qubiz was selected as a National Champion representing Romania in the 2016/17 European Business Awards. We competed with 33.000 (yes, that is thousand) companies from 34 European countries for the title.If that doesn’t sound impressive, here’s more. As National Champions, we qualified for the next phase of the competition, in which we can become one of the 10 Ruban d’Honneur recipients in the ELITE Award for Growth Strategy of the Year category.Yes, we’re impressed too!
The part about the European Business AwardsThe European Business Awards is an independent Awards program, designed to recognize and promote business excellence and best practices in the European business community. It’s widely recognized as Europe’s largest and most significant cross-sector business competition, receiving support from key business leaders, academics, media and politicians.The Awards aim to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe.

The part where we give thanksWe saved the best for last part :)We haven’t prepared a long speech, but we know we want to pass the most sincere, candid and warm thanks.The biggest “Thank you!” we can think of goes out to all our developers, support staff, HR gang, clients, software architects, QAs, collaborators – everyone we’ve worked with during the past years. Thank you all for your effort, your dedication and for your trust.None of this would have happened if it hadn’t been for each and every one of you. Thank you wholeheartedly for making this happen!
