Freshworks Studio hits Vancouver
Just over a year into its business life, Victoria mobile application developer Freshworks Studio has expanded to Vancouver.
The company, founded by Samarth Mod and Rohit Boolchandani, has more than doubled in size since last fall and now has 25 employees.
“We wanted to set our foundation in Victoria first and have a strong base before we moved there,” said Mod, noting the Vancouver move makes sense for a company with big plans in its future. “The business in Vancouver is probably 10 times that in Victoria, and we had been hearing that for more than a year.”
The company already has several Vancouver-based clients, and expects that to increase significantly now that it has a presence at 543 Granville St.
“Right now there seems to be a barrier to have [clients] come to Victoria for an office visit,” Mod said. “We want to remove that barrier for them and, hopefully, grow our business.”
The ultimate goal is to expand to the U.S. The company intends to set up a Seattle office within the next two years.
