How It All Began

Being veterans of the tech industry, our founders had two observations: A) customers do not get value from their tech investments in solutions. B) the bulk of the talent in the tech industry comes from non-metro towns and cities but is in metros because jobs are there.

These facts got us to design a unique platform—ideas to impacts—that, on the one hand, ensures the delivery of high-value solutions to customers and, on the other, takes jobs to where the talent and entrepreneurs are from, drastically improving their quality of life.
