Entrepreneurs looking to innovate
Whether you want to test the seed of an idea or take a finished product to the next level, we’ll work with you to disrupt markets and build new ones.
The LandscapeHub team came to us with more than 100 years of family experience in the nursery business — and a desire to disrupt everything. We helped them build a two-sided marketplace connecting buyers and sellers, then train a new tech team to run it. Today they're a fully-funded startup with big plans to expand.
Tend's founder came to us just as Australia was deregulating homecare — opening up an opportunity to bring technology to a previously paper-bound industry. He needed a technical partner to make the most of the moment. Together, we conducted user research to identify pain points and find solutions. The resulting app gives caregivers, clients and families a digital space to coordinate and communicate, making homecare more transparent and flexible than ever before.
Sprout San Francisco came to us in 2012 wanting to connect with parents searching for non-toxic and eco-friendly gear. We saw an opportunity to grow sales with a baby registry app, and helped Sprout capitalize.
Four years later, Sprout came back to update the app using all the sales data it had collected. We were able to deliver new functionality and a platform for massive potential e-commerce growth.
Cobbler Concierge provides on-demand shoe and handbag repair. So we both know the value of good craftsmanship. To streamline their operations, we built a custom logistics system with a back-end portal for managing repairs and a consumer-facing e-commerce site for requesting service.
Table XI takes pride in Chicago’s ingenuity. So when The Wabash Lights team was investigating a way to light up the L tracks, we ran a one-day Inception to mock up a vision for the proposed work of public art and propose technologies to make it happen. After a successful Kickstarter and trial run, we’re prototyping a mobile app to let users personally control the light displays.
Dr. Jane McGonigal built SuperBetter to see if gaming could help combat mental illness. That test proved successful, and after giving a TED talk on her findings, Jane called us to stabilize and update the iOS game and manage the technology. Together, we re-released a mobile app that will add 10 years to your life.
When fashion designer Maria Pinto — yup, the Michelle Obama favorite — wanted to relaunch her brand, she came to Table XI for advice. We helped her build a successful e-commerce strategy and platform for her new M2057 line. Today Maria’s business is thriving, with e-commerce alone growing more than 50 percent last year.
