Originate is taking action on COVID-19
We build better digital products
We team with new ventures & industry-leading incumbents to frame & build ideas that power new ways of doing business.
Build a digital advantage
The pace of innovation in 2020 demands a bias for action and a willingness to place a few smart bets. But iteration is not the same as guessing – we believe that it is in applying the principles of good design that you find compelling answers. And to us, good design has very little to do with making screens look good. Rather, it’s a way to solve problems. It’s a way to build a connection with your customers. And it’s way to create real economic value.
When Brown University needed a better way to connect community students and alumni to the university and one another, they turned to us. We helped them rethink the way they use technology to build and nurture connections. Then we rebuilt the platform that does it. And the app. In Deo Speramus.
Create real value. Real fast.
Great products create value by providing simple, elegant solutions to real, expensive problems. We can take you from concept to launch with high-return answers to your biggest business questions. And we can do it fast.
When an auto-rental startup with $1B+ in funding needed to deploy a new app on Android in less than 3 months, they came to someone they knew could work fast. We shipped the new app in 6 weeks.
World-class engineering to deliver quick results.
Being a digital winner in 2020 doesn’t just mean having a compelling strategy or idea, it means being able to build it. But you can’t build fast, and you can’t build right if you don’t have world-class engineering on your team.
When NatGeo wanted to give their audience access to all their content in a unified digital experience, they had to figure out how to rapidly and reliably deliver content at scale. We solved the problem, built the platform, and then built the app that powers the new experience.
Venture lab design, creation, and best practices.
We’ve found that cultures are like personalities – you can’t create them, you have to evolve them. We’ve learned (the hard way) that while innovation is fueled by tech, you need a way to engage and empower people to use it. And in this regard, nothing beats getting them to build new digital products.
When DBG, the EU’s largest stock exchange, was thinking about how to develop the culture, technology, and product development practices to drive innovation-at-scale, they came to us. We partnered with their c-suite to design and deploy a network of Product Development Labs within the company. Then we built a technology platform and an API economy to support it.
