Our Philosophy

We don’t have clients; we have partners. Because a vision is good, but a shared vision is great. It’s not where an idea comes from, it’s where it can go and what it can deliver for your business and your future.

So, let’s collaborate and create something extraordinary together!

Westwerk believes in giving back to the community we thrive in – WordPress. As a key player within the WordPress community, we regularly meet with other industry veterans and founders, and attend, sponsor and speak at national WordPress events. This allows us to continually stay on top of and hone new WordPress initiatives, functionality, features and more. We also annually support and sponsor WordCamp Minneapolis, a weekend-long conference focused on continuing education, networking and sharing.
