the webbee Story

A story of being bold, making mistakes, learning and success


A lot has happened since the idea behind Webbee was conceived. Again and again we took risks, made mistakes, learned new things and were ultimately delighted about our successes. It was around the end of 2018, when it became clear to us that most of our successes had begun with courageous decisions and that the knowledge we gained on our way made it possible for us to achieve our goals. That is why these principles, which run through our history, have become our guiding principles:

Be bold: trying out new things and taking risks is essential in order to develop ourselves and our projects further, to identify and to seize opportunities. Sometimes ideas sound almost too crazy to try - but these are often exactly the ideas that bring us closer to our goals.
Make mistakes: Whoever is courageous makes mistakes and that is normal. Because this is the case, we view it as positive and as a logical conclusion of good courageous actions.
Learn from mistakes: Only our mistakes show us which paths lead us to our goal and which do not. That is why we deal with our mistakes, try to understand them and learn from them.
Success is then only the logical conclusion!
