After two years in the Jiaotong University incubator center it was time to move on for Spill Group Asia. We moved into the incubator center in May 2006, at that time with just 7 employees. Two years later we have about 70 employees, and we needed to look for a bigger space. We found a good and affordable one in the Si Hang building, located next to the Suzhou Creek at the Xizhang Lu bridge. This is the building where Tudou used to have its office until about 2 years ago. A good building, close to downtown (People’s Square), two subway stations, and with mainly creative industry companies. And also a building with an interesting history.
Over the past month the office was completely redecorated, among others with an additional floor, and this week we moved in. Moving was quite a hassle with so many people, but after some of the staff worked for almost 48 hours straight everything was ready by Monday morning. The new office is big enough for all people to be in one space (in our old office we occupied two separate offices), which is much better for communication. Also we finally have a bigger meeting room, because until now we had a problem when we had meetings with more than 10 people.
In case you also have an office in the Si Hang building or in one of the other warehouses along the Creek close to our building, let me know. I plan to organize the June Lunch 2.0 event in our office, so everybody who plans to join that, can see and hear about our activities during that lunch. For more info about Lunch 2.0 check with George Godula from MHDirekt (georg (dot) godula (at) mhdirekt (dot) com). George, if you already have a website for Lunch 2.0 Shanghai let me know and I will link to it here.
