Stevie Awards: STRV wins Startup of the Year

We won a Stevie! We won a Stevie! We won a Stevie!

Actually, we won three! How cool is that?! Sort of like the Oscars, but for all us other business professionals. STRV CEO David Semerad is set to attend the awards ceremony in New York City next month.

The Stevie Awards honor the achievements and contributions of companies and business professionals around the world.

STRV was awarded a Gold Stevie under the category Startup of the Year for business services industries. We also got a pair of Bronze Stevies in the categories Company of the Year for computer software with up to 500 employees as well as Tech Startup of the Year.

“What an honor!” says David. “Grabbing a Gold Stevie for Startup of the Year and being recognized for our top-quality tech and design skills highlights STRV’s core values and is a real testament to our deep commitment to our clients and the startup community.”

Judging was based on STRV’s project achievements and growth targets from 2015. Many of our projects, including Hallmark’s video streaming app Feeln, were featured on the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Store and the Sony Smart TV app store.

We also added a number of key clients to our growing portfolio last year — Pura Scents, Basil, Eaze, Ripple, Flip, Cross Paths, LoungeBuddy and Rich Uncles, to name a few — and collaborated with with a number of established brands like Nickelodeon, Lufthansa, DHL and Spark Networks.

The year is less than half over, and it’s already been pretty amazing. In addition to moving to larger development offices in Prague’s evolving Karlin business district, we are also expanding our team as we prepare to launch work on a number of exciting high-profile projects for US clients in the coming weeks.
