The story of their business is impressive and their faith in new technologies such as HUI’s is exceptionally heart-warming. In 10 years, they have created a business hiring over 700 people and building pipelines for big players on the Polish market. Their motto written on the wall in their office is: ‘Innovation is about seeing what everyone can see, yet discern something that nobody else managed’.”
