Our route is an adventure.
Our founder, Dmitry Aksenov, initiated the development of a range of B2B web- and mobile-based applications back in 2010, as an owner of Happy Group Inc., a web development agency. He then realised that some of the applications he created could be further developed and applied in a significant number of different companies all over the world, to help them grow faster and offer better services. So, he stopped running an agency and started to develop a new software, with much a bigger impact on a larger number of businesses all over the world.
After Dmitry established London Brand Management in early 2011, we spent the entire year building products that were useful, powerful and easy to use. During the first few months of trading, the company specialised mainly in consulting services in the UK. Within a short time, we realised that we had the energy and drive to grow into a worldwide business.
At London Brand Management, 2011 will be remembered for our very first product launch (a ‘Student Helper’ that allowed companies on campus to sponsor students’ software) and for the process of development of numerous B2B products.
Breakthrough in feedback management, anonymous reporting and we website building.
Followed by extensive work on our product range in 2011, we currently operate nine brands worldwide, and this number is growing. In addition, we supply bespoke applications to larger companies in the UK and Europe. We are now one of the leading start-ups in both feedback management and anonymous reporting sectors, and we are growing our forces in the automated website creation market as well.
In March 2012, we moved to a prestigious location in the City of London in order to offer the best possible experience to both employees and clients. We currently have more than nine full-time employees, and we are continuing to grow. We are working smart and hard to make this year even better, both for our clients and for ourselves.
