On the 11th of November 2015, we sat in a library and were filling out the online papers in order to become business owners. Ama had been planning Népra for over nine months and together we had worked on the project since June. It felt natural and normal - like it was just one of the steps during the long journey. The time had come.
The time feels long and short at the same time. Short since the time definitely flies but long because of all the things - so many things - that have happened. Surely, there are many things we would now make differently. However, we believe that you are never ready. We could have been planning Népra for years and we wouldn't still know it all or avoid mistakes. For the matter of fact, we embrace mistakes and react. That is the way to learn and keep improving.
If we wait until we're ready, we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives.

And we have been improving. We have made small changes to the products and we have improved our website a lot, which is for sure a never ending process. More importantly we have gained a better overall understanding about the things involved. We have learnt to prioritize better, we have learnt to make quick decisions and moreover, our team work functions more effectively.
On Thursday 19th of May, we will launch the new activewear tops for men and women. Moreover, Neptunus Shorts will get a new colour. In June, even more surprises are coming.
We feel so grateful for the progress and are excited about what the future brings.
