OUR VISION IS FOR BLOOD & TREASURE TO BECOME A BYWORD FOR QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP AND OUTSTANDING PERSONAL SERVICE
Within a year we moved the business to Ireland after a friend suggested that a government grant to hire more developers might be available in Ireland. Indeed it was, allowing us to build up our team and increase the number of projects we could handle.
We are selective with who we choose to contract with and aim to work closely with them in partnership. As a result, we only build products that we are proud of – products made with quality craftsmanship and outstanding design. We do this because we love technology and we hope to share this passion with others.
There are good reasons major brands like Apple, Intel, Google and Facebook have invested in Ireland. Apart from a low corporate tax rate of 12.5%, Ireland has a well-educated workforce and strong entrepreneurial spirit. Now most of our development work is done from our Ireland office where costs are lower than in the States but the quality is just as good as anything you can find Stateside.
After opening a branch of the company in NYC in 2015, we are very proud that MVPs (Minimum Viable Products) we built have raised $11.8 million in funding for our clients so far.
