We enjoy working with progressive big brands because we can create a better future together. But there's nothing like the present and why we absolutely love working with startups. We seek a balance between both types of projects because so much can be learned from each that can directly or indirectly benefit the other.
Either way, we work to higher standards of responsiveness, passion, and execution than typical agencies, consultants, or innovation firms. We just care more about our clients and their business, and it shows in the output of our work. We also know we're not for everyone.
To know your future, you must first know your past. Our past has been close to two decades of deep innovative technology product experience and creative business development with some of the greatest trailblazers, market makers, and risk takers in the digital age. Because we respect our clients confidentiality and we don't need to gloat about how potent we are, we don't disclose the clients we're currently engaging with. What we can say is that most of our clients are handpicked and are approached because they're representative of the brands we personally respect, love, and want to help reach new heights. This makes it very natural for us to gravitate to and enthusiastically rally around meaningful products and services that help people live well.
Our broad experience at the intersection of technology, business, and design across hardware, software, and the Internet of things gives us a unique and complete approach as your business development un-agency partner. Shared Philosophy, Shared Passion, Shared profits. True Collaboration. Below are some of the companies we've worked closely with over the years.
Startups are the lifeblood of innovation and a better future for our world. At nineten, we spend nearly 50% of our time working with a select group of compelling startups each year. The most appealing startup projects are those that help people live better lives and create sustainable & responsible products. We care deeply about passionate startup founders who care.
For startups, we perform a wide range of tasks and look for as many opportunities to add value quickly and be an ongoing resource as the business matures. These include: early stage ideation workshops to frame the key pillars of success, strategic user and market insights, branding, business model design, most viable product design & development, fundraising, bizdev, alliances, and full-on product design & dev. Since our process is lean and focused, we can keep costs within available budgets while still delivering top-tier quality, on time. Contact us and let's talk about your startup project.
