For a little over 3 years our office has been located at a local startup incubator run by European Centre of Youth Cooperation. They offered us a lot of help when our company started, but since Wikidot is not a startup anymore, it is time to move on and make room for new startups and young entrepreneurs.
For the last 2 weeks we have been preparing our new place — cleaning, painting, getting desks and furniture. Today we made a jump, quickly packed our things (we do not have that much stuff) and moved into the new office! Hurray!
While our previous office was really close to the Old Town, the new one is in its very center. It is really nice to have a medieval church next to us. The main city street filled with city life is just a few steps away. We are now only 150 meters away from the Copernicus statue (550 meters closer than before) which is the central point of the Old Town. For those who missed the fact, Copernicus was born in Toruń :-)
What is most important, we now have enough space to work comfortably and expand our project. There is still some mess we need to clean, but this can wait, right?
The move was a kind of a project for us too. We do like new challenges, and this time we learned a lot about office designs, painting and all the hard work you need to do to convert a place into an office where one wants to spend time in and work effectively. So we did all the work ourselves, spending a few hours a day on this project for the last 2 weeks.
(I promise better photos when everything is in place and we get a better camera)
After working half a day in the new office, we can all feel a huge difference. And, if by any chance you are in Toruń, drop in for a coffee!
