MeetHugo’s Driving Force

Furthermore, goals remain constant until they are met, at which point a new goal is set and the engine continues to run.

Piece of advice from Ben Harper

“DO NOT GET LEFT BEHIND.”

Move fast, break things, learn from your mistakes and then move forward again. It’s okay to not get it right the first time but getting it right doesn't mean sitting still. Find that next product, next goal, next method - anything that will improve your service and make your company succeed,” shares Ben Harper.

Organizational culture and how to establish it

If we have to sum up MeetHugo's culture in one word, it would be "open."

Their organizational culture is very relaxed and transparent - with numbers, targets, good months, bad months - it’s all clear to everyone and there are no surprises.

Being open from the beginning was critical for them, and everyone needed to remain on top of things and have all of the information and actions clear in their minds.

Building a company based on transparency has undoubtedly contributed to MeetHugo's success.
