You’re doing fine. You’ve got a new idea. You have the perfect domain name. You’re actually making money, and everything is good. But now and then you run into challenges you aren’t quite sure how to tackle.
It’s not that you can’t do it – either you’re too close to the problem, or it’s just something you haven’t encountered before and you don’t have the time to come up to speed by yourself. This is where we can help.
One of the most useful ways of thinking about a problem is in terms of a kitten. A kitten only cares about a few specific things, and concentrates on them to the exclusion of everything else. The kitten at the top of the page is preparing to steal your watch. Startup founders in particular often end up being kittens, focussing on the problem at hand — which is often what is needed to get things done.
We aren’t kittens. Our job isn’t to know every detail of your company and technology, but to have a thorough overview of the landscape. We spend our time scouting out or creating new ideas and technologies so that we can introduce you to them when you need them. We are kittens with jetpacks.
We have experience in a range of areas that are helpful when you need a little help, including:
James Aylett helped build Tangozebra, Europe’s leading digital advertising technology provider (bought by Doubleclick, now part of Google), and Artfinder, a site for sharing your passion for art while finding more to see, love and buy. He is co-founder of /dev/fort, a band camp for web technologists, which has created sites such as Spacelog, Wildlife Near You and Historymesh. He has presented to, taught at or consulted for a wide variety of organisations including EMI, Nortel Networks, Channel 4, Diffiniti and The Edinburgh Festival Fringe. James is joined by guest consultants from around the world. (If you are interested in working with us, and have your own jetpack, please get in touch.)
