We believe in the future. Therefore, we believe in change.
We know that ideas are the only thing that truly changes the world. This is why we develop digital, scalable tools that help great ideas to reach the right audiences.
Twenty years ago, Denniz Pop and Max Martin revolutionized the way of writing music. Ever since, Swedish producers have dominated the global charts. Our dream is to do the same thing for ideas.
There are more coders than consultants in our company. Tech beats politics, as the great Swedish entrepreneur Jan Stenbeck said.
Happiness is not measured by the number of employees, but by the number of users. Our organization is not a whale but one of the shoal. We’re inspired by Uber, not dinosaurs.
We don’t sell hours. We sell products and services.
No, this is not another agency. To start one of those in 2015 would be like starting a record label. We’re inspired by how Spotify turned the music industry on its head.
This is no place for charlatans. We are heavy users who build the tools we need ourselves.
We know that there is no such thing as a free lunch. But we also know that talent and passion beat status and cash. Hence, our mission is to help passionate people spread great ideas.
We were conceived in a tiny hotel room at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and born in Stockholm during Symposium, celebrating the creative capital of the world.
We’re born digital, born global and born design.
We are powered by Miltton, the Nordic standard-bearer in creative, integrated communications. Together, we’ll bring change.
Summer is coming.
