Pioneering and pushing technology boundaries – pretty much a given nowadays for the software-driven startup. Here are some insights we’ve observed working with a number of venture capital (VC) companies who have managed to navigate the choppy waters and successfully grow their business including winning further investment along the way.
With our deep hands-on technical expertise and pragmatic focus, OpenCredo has become a natural software acceleration partner for VC funded organisations who are looking to deliver tangible value as effectively as possible. We’ve been brought in to work alongside these innovators at various stages of their journey. As such we’ve gained an appreciation for and acquired, first-hand insight into some of the pressures and challenges faced. From getting and securing that next round of funding, to grappling with the technical decisions and challenges inherent in sensibly evolving offerings to accommodate future growth and scaling.

Here are my top highlights from Day 3 of the CloudNative London 2019.
We are immersed in the wider technology community. You will often find us attending and speaking at conferences and meet-ups across Europe (and sometimes beyond). We also contribute to open source projects, and publish opinions via our blog. Learning from others, and sharing our knowledge, ensures we remain a leader in the emerging technology space.
