We have nearly three decades of experience working with prestigious investment management firms, FinTechs impacting Africa, HealthTechs endorsed by WHO, YC-alum startups, government departments, and big global banks helping software professionals. And we've helped all of them ignite the impact they make with their software and their people.
Our mission? Contribute to a world where software devs are their own sovereign entities, and where software development is an omnidirectional skills and value exchange.
So sure, we're not for everyone - but that’s kind of the point: We don’t fix things if we aren’t the best fit for the job. And we don’t partner with you if we don’t think we can actually add real value.
Are you ready to ignite your impact?Yes, let's go!🔥
We always start by understanding your specific landscape: We meet your team, we look at your software, we listen to your challenges, we unpack your current systems and processes, and we understand your broader vision as a company. Investing at this step makes the next two infinitely more productive.
With a clear idea of your current reality, we can begin to define a solution. We look at your people, processes, and technology in order to uncover silos and surface potential optimisations. Our goal is to use what you already have, figure out where we can plug into, keep your goal at the forefront, and ignite massive impact with the least amount of friction.
From there, we knuckle down and get going. Leveraging your teams, and blending our expertise with theirs, we work alongside you to enable your organisation to do the work it’s supposed to do. We help you improve team dynamics, get the right people doing the right things, streamline your processes, optimise your architecture, and craft software solutions.
If you need people, we'll help you hire them - but we don’t hire if you don’t need it. Adding more people onto your team is a big deal, and sometimes you’ve already got the right person working for you, only they’re working in a system that isn’t set up to help them thrive.
We're selective when choosing partners. In service of the world we’re trying to contribute to, we wouldn’t be contributing positively if we took on any project that came our way. If we can’t guarantee value in our partnership, then we’ll happily help guide you to someone who can help!
Doing a complete 180 won’t fix your problem: Tech can cope with change, but people need time to adjust. Incremental change done with intention, commitment, and foresight is unequivocally better than making sweeping changes for a quick-fix. And we’ve seen that difference in action.
We're moving into Web3, and want to build a Web3 community of like-minded enthusiasts, innovators, leaders, and front-runners. We're keen to play with, make, develop, and discover what Web3 has to offer.
So, whether you create your own NFTs, follow crypto, run a blockchain-friendly company, or are just Web3 curious, we want to chat to you — like, now.
Web3 is going to change the world. And we’re waiting for you to join us on the front-line.
My passion is connecting the right people, and enabling them through technology, so that they can affect the change they’re supposed to.
[ Read more about me ]
After studying ComSci, I entered tech through coding a product geared towards project management. I later became a Scrum master when people were just starting to adopt Agile.
I love hacking together apps in React, Node, Solidity and Rust; I’ve minted NFTS; I set up a DAO; I've even defined and implemented my own SQL-like formal language (sadly not Turing complete…).
But what I’m really passionate about is connecting people, and enabling people through technology, so that they can create the impact they’re supposed to. I care about helping elevate software professionals with the right tools, the right knowledge, the right partnerships, and the right networks so that they can go out into the world and change lives.
My passion is the interplay between tech, people and value delivery. I love seeing how we make a tangible improvement that impacts people in a meaningful way.

By the time I was seven, I was already making my first computer programmes. I went on to study Information Systems, and then worked at a technology consultancy where I built solutions for businesses. I also co-founded a health tech device, and worked on both the software and the hardware implementation.
When I emigrated to the UK, I worked with governments on projects that had a direct impact on people — and that confirmed my passion for the interplay between (and undeniable importance of both) tech and people.
Any team, company, or founder needs to consider both their technology and their people if they want their software to have the impact they intend it to have. And I love that I get to help people with that full-time now.
Impact doesn't just spontaneously combust! You gotta strike that match by reaching out to us. Let’s start right now.
If you’re thinking of working together, or want to dive into tech and Web3, let's book a call!
We’re looking forward to changing the world with you! :)
We'd put the logos of companies in our clientbase here, if that was something that mattered to us. But it doesn't.
We'd rather have you want work with us because of what you think we can do for you, and not because of who we've worked with before.
