Announcing our brand new office in New York City
Nulab, Inc. expanded its business operations in Japan from Fukuoka to Tokyo and Kyoto. We also launched our Singapore office three years ago to serve our customers in Southeast Asia.
This fall, we are extremely excited to announce our plans to open our fifth office in New York! Cacoo, our online diagramming tool, has over a million users worldwide, with 85% residing outside of Japan in areas including the USA, South America, and Europe. With the establishment of the New York office, we hope to better serve our users in these areas.
Why New York?
In 2009, when Cacoo was launched, the three founders of Nulab, who were previously programmers, barely had any business relations overseas and spoke little English. Yet, they knew they would like to introduce Cacoo to the rest of the world someday.
On the recommendation of their friend and advisor, Mr. Yoshizawa, they visited the USA. They attended a Wordcamp conference in New York as sponsors to discover more about the tech scene in the Big Apple.
The challenge to a global business
During the visit to New York, the three founders actively sought new experiences and networks, which motivated them to concentrate on the overseas expansion of Nulab. After returning from New York, they held the first CacooUp events in Europe and Asia. In 2011, they founded their first overseas office in Singapore.
From New York to the World
Of course, we do not plan to stop at New York. We also hope to create Nulab offices in South America and Europe someday to serve our users in those regions better. We aim not just to provide collaboration tools but also to collaborate with our users worldwide through them.
We are hiring!
With a new office, we are, of course, looking for new talents to fill it! We have some exciting new positions available. For more details, go to our Career Page.
