Captain's log, stardate d360.y37/AB

In the wake of everyone's frenzy of creating businesses and raising funds, we're often confronted with questions like "can I invest in MarsBased?", "if you want to expand to other countries, why don't you raise money to do it faster?", "there's so much revenue you can make with a team of ten, so why don't you hire more salespeople and a bigger team to sell more?". More incredibly, we were approached to be acquired to "help your business grow" last year.

Why didn't we do it? The answer is clear: we are not a startup.

In this post, we’ll share a few tips that helped us build and maintain our culture when everyone works remotely.

Let's once and for all solve this mistery.

In September, we attended this year's EuRuKo that was held in Sofia, Bulgaria. EuRuKo is short for European Ruby Conference. Four of our Martians headed to the Balcanic country for a week of remote working and to attend this edition of the European Ruby Conference.

Although it is not the first time that we attend a big conference - we've attended Startup Grind Global Conference, BaRuCo or FullStackFest - it was the first time we took this sort of adventure where a big part of the team travelled together.

The outcome of it couldn't be more positive. We've detailed it in five points that you can find below.

You're one step away from meeting your best partner in business.
