It’s been a busy few months here and we’ve got big news to share. Go Remote has been rebranded as Weve. (That’s right, W-e-v-e with no apostrophe. It’s a play on two words—weave (as in weaving teams together) and the contraction of we have (as in we’ve got your back). The Go Game remains our name for in-person events. And don’t worry, you’ll still see our game producers running around in orange jumpsuits at scavenger hunts and game shows around the world.
Since 2001, The Go Game has brought fun to work through in-person interactive games, events, and experiences that make employees feel connected and engaged. We were already in the process of creating a product for virtual teams in winter of 2019 when our CEOs, Ian and Finn, recognized a need for remote connection with more companies allowing for remote work than ever before. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we hit the ground running with our beta version of Go Remote.
Since then, we’ve hosted over 5,000 events for more than 4,000 companies. Our team has worked for the past 18 months to constantly make improvements and add new features to the platform. Now, we’re ready to share what “Weve” been up to.
Our new name isn’t our only big new change. The Weve platform is full of new features that allow you to pivot between work and fun in real time without any other video conferencing tools. The new platform has the same games Go Remote users love with even more ways to meet and play. Weve creates dynamic digital environments that enable real engagement that goes beyond the market standard video conferencing tool.
We’re excited to use our expertise in team building and games to help virtual teams of all sizes, from small teams to large corporations, connect. Weve enables team members to connect remotely to engage in games, live stream events, meetings, and more.
