Celebrating and looking in the rearview mirror
In our active work lives we don’t reflect about the past very often. We’re too busy to stop and think about our ups and downs, former colleagues and competitors, our failures and successes.
But with our 25th Anniversary coming up, I find myself looking in the rearview mirror.
The launch of EuroForm back in 1993 seems like an eternity ago. Jeez, it was almost before the Internet! And yet, I remember it clearly. At that time I had been working with HP for almost ten years. Great times! The leap towards entrepreneurship seemed huge and risky – but also very exciting the more I thought about it.
When we made the decision to start EuroForm, our sons were only 5 and 7 and my wife and I had recently bought our own house. So you see, I needed to create revenue straight away – because we couldn’t afford months without an income.
Needless to say, we succeeded. But only with help from former colleagues in the printer industry and support from friends and family. And of course also quite a bit of hard work.
Now we’re celebrating our 25th Anniversary, and it’s truly an incredible and emotional feeling.
I’m very proud of our company’s durability and progress over the years. We’ve managed to create a lasting and significant software company in the printer industry without losing the family core and values that define us.
I believe it’s ok to be proud of that.
Thank you to every partner who has had faith in us over the years – and still have. Thank you to all the employees that have been a part of EuroForm from the beginning until today. Without you guys there would be no Anniversary to celebrate! Huge thank you to my family and friends for always supporting and helping us when needed.
All the best,
