Our development team in Sofia, Bulgaria, during a fun dinner. The picture shows Stanimir, Niki, Hari, Maya, Simona, and Emy. When we are visiting our team in Sofia, we normally go out all together and have a good time. Below you can see the team at a traditional Bulgarian restaurant. Such an evening starts with rich salats and "Rakiya" (Schnaps). Very Bulgarian…. 🙂


Of course we don't only "play hard", but also "work hard". Below a picture of the modern office environment the Collanos development team works in.

Today we had nice party with a toast as we officially launched Collanos Software’s U.S. operations. The below picture shows the crowd in the “event hall” of our 1850 red bricks office building in downtown San Francisco.

Finally, a large magnum bottle of “Merryvale” Merlot 2000 Reserve was signed by everybody. The bottle will be opened at the Collanos “liquiditiy event” 😉 The next picture shows Kilian and Alex, a Silicon Valley business angel, showing their commitment.

Our SF offices are in the swissnex building, located in an old historic district that lies at a cultural crossroads where the Financial District, Chinatown, and Italian North Beach meet. Our two-level historic brick and timber building stands one street over from the Transamerica Pyramid in downtown San Francisco.

Both pictures show our office space on the upper floor of the swissnex building. Eighteen workspaces are available to share with individuals and organizations active between Switzerland and North America. swissnex welcomes technology and university outposts, start-up companies such as Collanos Software, individuals on sabbatical, and is always open to new forms of cooperation. Common visibility, a collaborative atmosphere, and an open floor plan generate synergies, and benefit all parties.
