Bangkok, Thailand, 25.09.2019
Eko, the all-in-one employee platform, announces its headquarters relocation from Bangkok, Thailand to London, England in a strategic move that serves to put London as the company’s main commercial hub, while Bangkok remains as its center for engineering and product growth.
In March of this year, the company also saw further expansions into Austin, Texas, which now operates as its primary commercial office for the United States and currently holds a team of 20, including sales representatives, marketing managers and customer success . At present, Eko is now located across 5 offices — London, Bangkok, Austin, Amsterdam and Berlin.
The expansion is the outcome of Eko’s Series B funding round which raised $20 million in November 2018, and serves as an important milestone for the company’s ambitious business growth globally. “Our penetration and continued growth into these significant IT markets has already proven successful – in just the last 30 days, our monthly app usage reached a record high of 5.5 million sessions. Recently, active users in the US and UK have been rising by up to 70% per month.” says Eko’s CEO and Co-founder Korawad Chearavanont.
In the near future, Eko also looks to form a customer support hub in Lisbon, Portugal in an effort to provide around-the-clock support to its many client companies situated around the world by centralising the office in Greenwich Mean Time.
With such widespread global efforts and more than 500,000 recurring users monthly, Eko’s employee count continues to grow rapidly, with the aim to hit a total of 200 employees by the end of 2019.
Founded in Thailand in 2012, Eko is a mobile-first employee platform that drives employee engagement, enables effective training, and strengthens operational efficiency. It empowers workforces across all industries with customizable and bespoke functions including internal communications, project management, knowledge management and many more tools. Eko believes that everyone—regardless of industry, background, location or company size—should be equipped with the right tools to boost their engagement and efficiency at work.
Eko is backed by leading VC firms including Gobi Partners, 500 Startups, Siemer Ventures, Tigerlabs Ventures, and many more. In total to date, Eko has raised $28.7 million in funding and this continues to grow.
