Earlier this week, we announced the acquisition of Polish startup Bema Sp. z oo.  It’s a good day when one startup has enough momentum – and capital – to buy another.  It’s an even better day when that acquisition can offer immediate benefits, and that’s the case here. As Egnyte Poland, this new location will enable us to broaden support for our one million customers worldwide and further expand our solution.  It will also provide a great base for us to reach into new markets.

Bema has provided advanced research & development capabilities for our solutions and this acquisition brings these valuable capabilities in-house.  Our plan is to quadruple the team over the next year, taking advantage of the rapidly expanding IT talent pool in Poland. With a population of over 38 million, Poland is the sixth largest economy in Europe and, according to the latest TopCoder ranking list has some of the best programmers in the world – the country is third, just behind Russia and China.

We’re pretty excited about this week’s news and look forward to telling you more about the new team – and their accomplishments – in coming months.  In the meantime, stay tuned for more great news coming from us later this month!
