Stepping out to Warda Network’s rooftop balcony reveals a panoramic view of Vienna’s picture-perfect 8th district. This, apparently, is the city from the perspective of a self-made man.
Eugen Prosquill, CEO and founder of the company wears a black jumper bearing the hashtag #fightsugar (a new project, he later explains). Not at all the tailored-suit-and-tie entrepeneur one would expect.
Thinking outside of the box
“Young, fresh, and brave. That is how I would describe Warda Network. When I was still living at my mom’s place at 19, I started taking party photos and sharing them on warda.at. They became quite popular and I was approached by my first clients, Money Boy and Alstoff Recycling Austria. Warda Network grew and by now, we’re not your typical advertising agency – it’s important for us to develop a friendly relationship with clients to better understand their needs and truly see things from their viewpoint. Our team has a youthful mindset, we think outside of the box… That helps us tackle projects in an engaging manner, for example the McShark campaign against the controversial anti-Burka law; in October 2017 our shark mascot got fined by the police for covering his face. It made a lot of noise on social media and even got coverage on international news sights. Either than that, we don’t have such action often, Vienna is a very relaxed city. I do have some favorite spots – the 8th district, Kahlenberg, being on a boat on the Donau is also cool. But of course the best place is where your friends are.”
Warda Network’s future and some friendly advice
“As for Warda Network… Stay tuned, because the journey is long and there are exciting things to be expected. I’m excited about our upcoming cooperation with NEOH – it’s a new start up for the world’s first chocolate bar without added sugar
(a vegan option will be on offer too) and we have part of the company. No matter what it is you dream of doing – don’t be afraid of “losing”, just do it! Give it your all and stand up for what you believe in.”
