EXWE company history - from the idea to the company

EXWE grows daily with its tasks. Because a company is not drawn on the drawing board

Every good story begins with a good idea

Yuri Struszczynski is the founder of EXWE and after studying computer science, he followed a simple idea: Out of passion for technology, develop software. In 2016, the time has come: Two friends of Yuri were looking for a partner for a shared office and so EXWE UG was launched in the office in Ernst-Melich-Straße (Dortmund).




The collaboration in Ernst-Mehlich-Straße was a complete success and as a young startup we were able to learn an extreme amount in a very short time. We supplemented ourselves with the first 450 EUR employees and tried to position ourselves more flexibly.


Those who work passionately don't stay alone for long and so Benni joined us in 2018 as our first permanent software developer. But this addition was also followed by a separation and we left the working group in Ernst-Mehlich-Straße and moved to Dortmund's Tremonia Park.



2019 was a pivotal year for the company, with Chris joining us as our second Managing Director and opening our branch office in Düsseldorf at the same time, which has once again significantly accelerated EXWE's growth. If you want to grow, you need even more space, and so after just one year in Leierweg 17, we moved one house further to Leierweg 13, where we can develop even more. More space, more homeliness, happier employees.



2020 has challenged and encouraged us. Like many companies, we were faced with some problems this year. But we don't call ourselves problem finders and problem solvers for nothing - obstacles really get us going. Therefore we can end this year with new customers, our first apprentice Lennart, our first in-house trainer Benni, three new employees (greetings go out to Thomas, Lisa and René) and a lot of fun and nice moments. We started the year with three employees and ended it with eight - so everything didn't go so badly after all.

Exwe grows daily with its tasks and so an idea forms into a company.
