A zombie movie usually goes like this: Some part of the human population gets exposed to a virus, people turn into uncontrollable zombies who run around and infect others to turn them into mindless creatures who then feed off others without a real goal – always infecting more people and feeding off anything they can find. The heroine or hero of the story tries to survive by gathering a group of uninfected people and fights side by side with them with the goal to find a cure or to extinguish all undead to save mankind from doom and forever-lasting darkness.
As a young company and startup we have a great team sharing a vision and fighting for/with each other to create something wonderful that has a real impact on the status quo. The two infecting viruses we are trying to stay away from and hope to extinguish are apathy and mediocrity. The goal is – against all odds – to attract excellent, smart, dedicated people who are willing to work side-by-side to create something new that will stand out, be different and wildly successful in transforming the way we do things.
One of the dangers a young, growing team faces is letting zombies in their house. They want nothing more than drag you to the ground and absorb you into their horde of brainless, drooling undead that doesn’t know right from wrong. When you and your team find a zombie in your midst you have to protect yourselves quickly before it infects you or brings the rest of the zombie horde along.
It’s not a zombie’s fault! Once turned zombie they don’t know any better than infecting others and dragging them into zombie-life. So beware that you don’t get infected without noticing it. Your team will either have to put you down or you will turn them into the living dead as well.
I wish you nothing but the best for fighting with your team for your ideas and ideals and that your work will catapult us all into a new and better world. But please watch out; brain-eating zombies are lurking at every corner – and they come in hordes!
