What a year 2020! Even though it brought many setbacks and challenges, we are emerging from this year stronger than ever before. If we would have to pick one keyword describing the last year for ShowHeroes it's easily said: Growth.
The month of December marked a special highlight in the history of our company. We were very excited to announce the launch of the ShowHeroes Group after adding our Italian based friends from Viralize to the Group’s rapidly growing portfolio. What began four years ago with three founding Heroes has now grown to a whole new dimension with more than 160 employees operating from more than 10 markets.
Our new entity serves as an umbrella for six different brands and solutions, forming Europe’s most innovative digital tech and media group with a focus on video. We are very excited for the new adventures as the ShowHeroes Group. Read on for the international press review on the ShowHeroes Group launch.
