When Ludwig and I got to Guerila Office on Monday, we arrived a little late and had no idea what to expect. The first people we met were two people engaged in a conversation with each other. One was Vasilis and the other one was Marlena, founder of startitup.se (a ten week course were you learn to start a internet company).
When we spoke with Marlena she firstly asked us for some help with her webpage, but since we are have no clues about website programming we said we couldn’t help. As we talked more we asked if there was anything we could do and then she asked, maybe jokingly, if we knew anyone in Kalmar with mass media experience. As it happens, I grew up there and still have many friends there so I put her in contact with some of them. I found it amazing that, within 20 minutes of arriving to an unknown place and an unknown organisation, I connected an unknown person with some friends of mine in Kalmar. Networking is extremely important for start-ups and Guerilla Office is the place to network.
During the rest of the time we had a really good conversation with Vasilis were he explained the concept of Guerilla Office, but it was nothing compared to experience it first hand. So if you have some free time, drop by and see if you like the concept. Tomorrow Vasilis will come to the class, so please prepare some good questions for him and PLEASE be on time!
Axel and Ludwig
