Fraud Fighter Fest – an international team-building

In a really diverse agenda for a modern start-up community, offering an artisan program is almost a must. We organised a team-building event for 250 young developers from all around the world, specialising in cyber-risk management, with various elements, such as sports, games, talks, and, yes, embroidery.

The project

SEON Technologies is a Hungarian startup recognized twice as one of the most promising fintech companies before expanding its operations and opening a new office in London. It’s no coincidence that we enjoyed working with them so much! Although their business focus – on fraud prevention systems – may seem different at first glance, their values and business model, driven by a good cause, align with ours in many ways. We organized an all-staff teambuilding event for this innovative, international, and dynamic company, which turned out to be just as modern, energetic, and exciting as the brand itself.

SEON contacted us for assistance in organizing a teambuilding day as part of their week-long all-staff event. They were looking for a suitable venue and program ideas to cater to the diverse community of employees from different cultures and personalities. They wanted to end the week with a big celebration and a full day of activities.

Thus, the Fraud Fighter Fest was born.

The task

We had to incorporate the company’s friendly and casual atmosphere into the event. Our goal was to fill an entire day with a mix of informal conversations, sports activities, relaxation time, and indoor and outdoor elements, allowing everyone to find activities that suited their preferences and providing opportunities for employees to get to know each other, including their international colleagues.

Considering the startup’s employees are mostly young, we tailored the event concept, activities, and menu to their average age. We’ve also offered various dietary, vegetarian and vegan options.

The concept

The atmosphere of railway stations is unparalleled: cultures merge, different people come together, encounters and the excitement of travel intertwine, destinations vary, and openness to new things prevails. We froze the moment of arrival in a new place for one day. With its matching program offerings, this venue provided everything needed for a comfortable living space, connections, and creativity, including the possibility of stepping out of one’s comfort zone.

The activities

We reimagined the industrial environment and created a sleek, diverse space. Guests played badminton and climbed walls on outdoor and indoor sports courts, conversed in vintage train cars evoking elegance from bygone eras, and enjoyed food and drinks at large and small tables. We also celebrated the company’s successes in the screening room.

The team building event venue allowed everyone to showcase their strengths, gain insight into their colleagues’ values, and discover new things. The venue’s various rooms and spaces contributed to the diversity of the program. Physical activities were offered through outdoor sports options, entertainment through games, community building through social programs, and relaxation through a hidden oasis chill zone on the upper floor.

What we loved the most

Our favourite spot was the oasis, where people could play board games, relax on sun loungers, gather around the ping-pong table, and enjoy the embrace of lush plants.

We loved Fankapanka’s embroidery workshop, where guests could create unique embroideries. They enjoyed it so much!

It was a pleasure to experience a fresh and contemporary startup from within. To witness the positive and meaningful dialogues between the founders and the SEON team!
