Our Startup Journey....
How it all began, our growth, and where we're headed...
From BizQuiz to Blunder to Zapiens
After many years working as a consultancy, we realized that companies that we worked with shared a need for knowledge management and improved internal knowledge flow. We worked with our clients to create the first iteration of our service: BizQuiz, a system of questions and answers in the form of stacks of "post-it's".
After some months of concept trials, market studies, market validation, and product improvement, we released the next iteration, Blunder, a system for learning from mistakes and the basis for Zapiens. We got our first clients and got feedback and many ideas for further improvement.
In August of 2017, Blunder turned into Zapiens. The system of learning from mistakes became just one of the many knowledge management tools with artificial intelligence that Zapiens now offers. The growth of the product, our customer base, and internationalization brought us to the brand change.
When Blunder was founded in 2015, we had 4 people, a lot of excitement, ideas, and a tiny little workspace inside the Freehouse which we called "the hiding place". Little by little we grew, adding clients and expanding our team.
Our first big growth
After a few months, we began to take up more space in the Freehouse. Our family soon grew past a dozen. We had faithful clients, big firms that trusted us, and we began to win all the startup competitions that we entered.
Strengthening and Expansion
Now we occupy the whole Freehouse in Oviedo, have an office in Gijón and have workers in Madrid, Barcelona and París.
We have thirty people pushing Zapiens forward, the best team we could have hoped for. We are in a stage of reinforcing the company and soon we will start our second expansion period.
