WHY THAT IMAGE?

Every year we do a company summit with the whole team, where we go through the numbers of the company, everyone exposes what we learned from different projects, analyze more strategic topics and brainstorm new ideas to improve the business. We had the pleasure to have Spiderman join last year and share his insights on the matter.
