A look inside Green Bein’s office
Green Bein's “conference room” or office “coffee shop." CEO Collin Caneva said that all great ideas are developed at coffee shops or bars, and regarding the foosball table, he said it's aesthetically displeasing but mostly used for hanging coats. Photo by Kate Ellingson.
Collin Caneva's business goal is to "create a creative, fun place for young Nebraskans to come and work and create great jobs and create wealth." In a recent interview with Caneva, president & CEO of Green Bein’ Productions, we spoke about the hardships of starting a business and also some of the recent success his company has seen (see: "Kid Command adds 56k users in Jan., Aaron Davis joins Green Bein’ team"). During the interview I realized that Caneva is not only motivated by his business, but also by his team at Green Bein’. I wanted to learn more about the culture and take a tour of the space.
Today, we're sharing with you the office tour (Photos by Kate Ellingson). Tune in Wednesday to learn more about Green Bein's culture.

When the Green Bein’ team is working in the office they sit around this large, custom built table.
The tiki bar and tradeshow booth area is the office “work lounge.” The tiki bar also contains the team’s gaming consoles.
The dry erase painted whiteboard is the team’s “dream board.” This is where they develop priorities and upcoming releases.
This smart board can be connected to anyone’s computer to share notes, ideas and drawings. It’s used a lot when communicating with remote team members.
