Facundo Castagna The companies are made of people … and Keetup has a Team!

The following text was translated by Google Translate Technology

Never better said this truth ... A business beyond its products or services, are made of people.

This year has been a year of big achievements. We grew, we’ve got completed projects, satisfied clients and big social networks. We love what we do. To convert an idea into reality is our 'leit motiv', to convert dreams into Social Networks. But this is just possible with passion and professionalism. With commitment. Creating a team. But fundamentally, our big secret, it is possible with the people that is behind (or actually, at front) of the company.  

Our company grew. There is new people that has being added to the team, and we all together, keep growing. Accentuating Keetup’s culture: passion, to have fun, commitment, and innovation.

And, as the Team deserved, we wanted to give a big party to celebrate this. Because its necessary to celebrate. We are a company that likes celebrations. And we have proposed to ourselves to have a beautiful day joining all the Team and their families. Because we feel Keetup as our own home. 

Barbecue could not miss, we had cheese and italian salami snacks, wine, beer, little Keetupers playing around (our future!!), lottery awards and a lot of fun. 


Because Keetup is made of people, we toast for each one of them. 

Keetup has a GREAT TEAM!
