Forward Forever was founded in March 2020 by five technology enthusiasts who had recognized the game-changing potential of low-code and Microsoft Power Platform. From the very beginning, the vision was to change the game by truly empowering Customers with low-code tools. Therefore, we chose to focus 100% on Microsoft Power Platform solutions.
The global COVID pandemic complicated things in many ways, but also accelerated digitalization a lot. Organizations took huge steps in a very brief time, which also meant that the demand for low-code solutions increased nicely. Within the first calendar year, we worked with more than 30 Customers and hired our first employee, a major milestone for any new company.
For Power Platform, 2021 was a fantastic year full of innovation, growth, and impact. With increasing interest for cost-effective and fast-to-deliver solutions from our Customers, also Forward Forever maintained a nice pace of growth, working with more than 50 Customers, hiring 4 new employees, and reaching 1 million Euros in revenue.
Another noteworthy milestone on our path was the commencement of our operations in Portugal in late 2021. It has been gratifying to observe that our message resonates not only within Finland but also beyond its borders.
Momentum for low-code seemed to be still on the rise. Organizations started building more solutions on Power Platform, and as there was starting to be also a growing number of business-critical applications, we started seeing an increasing need for continuous services and platform governance related help.
One of our significant milestones was when Lasse, one of the founders and the company's CEO until June 2022, decided to focus more on the technical aspects, and we brought Olli on board as our CEO to lead us into the next phase of our journey. The foundation for something great was there, and now it was time to start building on it.
Some highlights for the year included hiring 6 new employees, a company trip to Portugal, working with more than 60 Customers and getting together in Helsinki for some holiday festivities.
Work in progress! This year will be another year of fantastic growth and progress, but let’s update this part of the story once we move on to 2024.
