In the heart of Silicon Valley, we explore cutting edge technologies with a focus on both consumer and industrial IoT, insurtech, and healthcare.

Located in Palo Alto, we are part of a vibrant WeWork community, just a short walk from Stanford University.

Startups
We want you to succeed and design can help

In Silicon Valley, hiring and retaining in-house design talent is not easy. We have shipped more than 3,000 products and services, including an award-winning portfolio of physical products. Building a successful startup requires various design skills. We can provide a breadth and depth of design capabilities, exactly when you need it.

We offer reduced design fees, design services and mentorship.

Established businesses
Scouting and partnering with extraordinary innovators

When you connect technology scouting and design thinking, you can accelerate innovation. This enriched perspective comes from focusing on a pioneering finding, invention, behavior or technology, then considering its real-world effects on your product or service

Our program includes:

  • Mapping the landscape in your problem space, considering IoT and AI
  • Personas to understand users’ behaviors and attitude
  • Identifying emerging business models
  • Exploring applications of new technologies
  • Inspirational “cards” of lessons learned, for use in design thinking and innovation exercises
