Today is our birthday. Our sixth birthday. Simply to survive is an accomplishment for tech companies of today and we’re grateful and proud that over the last 2191 days we’ve managed to grow and mature within this wonderful ecosystem known as WordPress.
We seem to be on a roll with recent milestones. Today is another significant one; We’re 5 years old!
To be an online business and to make it to 5 years is an achievement in itself. To be 5 years old and to be experiencing our best growth month-on-month yet is testament to the team that powers our product offering and to you, our loyal customers.
4 years ago today WooThemes launched. What started as 3 WordPress designers dabbling in commercial theme development working from three home offices in Cape Town, London and Stavanger, is now a 24 person team supporting a community of 240,000 users.
WooThemes has become much more than just a WordPress themes company and we are hugely excited about our next few steps we are taking to truly become a one-stop WordPress powered business solution provider. WooCommerce and WooDojo have proven we are also a plugin development powerhouse and with our recent re-structuring and recruitments the next year is bound to be a monumental one for us.
