ABOUT US

We are idealists, gamers, immigrants, but most of all, even though you are reading this off of a webpage on a 2D computer screen, we are real people.


Our Why

More important than what we do, how long we have been working, or what titles we hold, is why. By starting off the conversation with why, you can get a clear understanding of our intentions and our purpose.

So why do we do this?

Action is the best religion.
When you ask people why they start businesses, most of them tell you that they want to go into business for themselves. To them we say that without customers to serve, there is no business. We believe inextricably in going to business for others, not ourselves.

We do this because someone is out in the rain homeless, and without a drop of hope. We do this for that young lad who stays in the after-school program because it provides him an extra meal for the day. We do this because the wonderful ecologies that sustain life are under threat.


Our Purpose

What keeps us going?

Our purpose is to enhance the lives of the underserved by using Technology.

We believe in what we call the bottom-up approach. By creating solutions that benefit the lowest rungs of society, we help all members of society advance.


Our Methods

What is our Methodology?

Emotions

We start any project by asking ourselves, "what am I really passionate about? What is it that I really care about?" There is no "process" for figuring this out either. Just like love, you either have it or you do not.

Research

We come in like Freshmen on the first day of class. We don't know the lay of the land, and we have to work hard to understand it.
During the research phase, we read mountains of information, talk to people involved, and try to formulate an understanding.

Design

Development

Our Culture

How do we interact with each other and the world around us?

Music

Music. We really love music. You will hear us jamming to some good instrumental beats around the clock. We are not fond of quiet library-style offices where everyone is too afraid to make a noise. We listen to just about anything. We always welcome new music, so please share your favorites. Here is the current mix:
