Do you know this proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” What if you decide to go far and fast... together? This is what we experience here at Netguru. We know that we are strong only as a close-knit team. We must go together. Besides, the more the merrier. We want to reach ambitious goals rather than rest on our laurels. We want to go far.
