    Competing with the big boys (feat. Filipe Tiago Stankovic)

    Competing with the big boys (feat. Filipe Tiago Stankovic)

    Although LSPs of different sizes tend to compete for different types of clients there is occasionally some overlap. In a world where we are constantly reminded of all the mergers and acquisitions that are happening and where more and more translation companies are betting on size and scale as a differentiator it is important to remember that in this industry of scope, not scale, there are still plenty of opportunities for smaller competitors to win.About Filipe:Filipe Tiago Stankovic is a young and very motivated CEO who has been working as such for the last 3 years. He originally started by getting his hands dirty and being involved in every possible step imaginable of the company. Now he is a bit more focused on (just) management. He loves learning and has been truly blessed by an opportunity (although sometimes burden :p ) very few young people get: to be in charge and to be able to actually try his new ideas from all the books he reads.About Nimdzi Live:There is a shadow industry driving the growth of ALL global brands: Localization.
