We love the feeling we get when something we’ve been working on comes to life and actually solves a problem.
Since we started, we have partnered with research institutions and companies large and small to help with debilitating problems like post traumatic stress disorder, addiction, obesity and depression. Everything we’ve learned shapes the solutions that we are working on now.
Did you know that food waste decomposition in landfills produces an incredible amount of methane, one of the most toxic gasses to our environment? Neither did we. But now that we do know, we are working to help solve this problem. Learn more.
Roughly seven million people are injured in the workplace each year. We’re working to build a set of tools that will help protect workers and businesses from injuries, lawsuits, and more by changing the culture that companies create. Learn more.
Wouldn't it be nice if health insurance companies and consumers could work together more efficiently? We want to create an experience that allows consumers and agents to work together to manage all of the data that helps us make good decisions. Learn more.
We love small business and believe strongly that it’s essential to the wellbeing of our communities. To that end, we helped launch Porter, an ordering app for walk up counters and food halls that makes it easy for customers to order without waiting in line. And for our clients, Porter helps walk up counters, food halls, pubs and more manage menus, inventory, and table ordering to help them serve their customers better. Learn more.

We live in arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world (as long as you don’t have allergies) in a community that is committed to caring for the environment. And even here, food waste is a huge problem. We love to cook and we hate the thought that we might be contributing to the problem of food waste in landfills f. Additionally, having traveled to Africa, Asia and Europe we have learned, to our shame, that the United States has a culture of disposable commerce that means that landfills will be full of valuable resources for a long time.
Unless we can change that.
We are working to reduce food waste by helping people change their behavior at home. By looking at the entire home food experience, we are helping users change behaviors one tiny step at a time. As a user continues to interact with the app, they will grow in their ability to reduce food waste while at the same time having fun in the kitchen and making meaningful changes in how they behave.
Creating a culture of safety is difficult to do, but not because people don’t want to be safe or because companies don’t care. In the midst of the pressing needs that face companies day in and day out,the process of documenting and complying with regulations sometimes falls to the bottom of the list when it comes to getting the job done.
But what if we could make staying safe and compliant easy? That is what we are setting out to do. We are building a suite of tools that allow employees to track their injuries and exposures so that they have a record of what has happened on the job.
Our goal is to give companies the tools to efficiently analyze safety concerns and ensure that safety policies and procedures that meet their employees' needs are in place.
We are based in Eugen, Oregon, a college town with a wonderful selection of local restaurants, breweries and food trucks. Opportunity abounds for local eateries in our community, but there are some significant barriers to success despite the eager and hungry populace.
Realtime menu management is a difficult issue to tackle. How do you show what’s available to your customers when you have 20 to 80 taps that are constantly rotating? How do you do this in real time without making it a nightmare for your staff? How do you take new orders, accept payments and make it easy for customers to check out when you (hopefully) have long lines at the counter?
We worked in partnership with local restaurateurs, designers, and developers to design a system that enabled us to explore what was possible for taking payments, managing menus, and fulfilling orders in realtime and with ease. The application has since become its own startup and has grown and evolved over time. It’s exciting to watch something you helped start become its own solution and mature.
Keeping track of all of the medical information is a difficult problem. There is data coming at us from all sorts of directions, in the news, our government, and the agents who help us. We want to make managing your health insurance data easier to manage.
We are creating a tool that allows insurance agents and clients to work together to track the medications, doctors, and healthcare plans that the client needs. By using a collaborative approach to data management, we believe that agents will be able to better guide clients through the often confusing process of documenting the data that they need to in order to make good decisions.
By utilizing the technology that is available to us, we will be able to automate searching for plans and getting expert advice on what works best. We can show clients plans based on what they need and allow for those plans to be reviewed and invested in from the agent’s side as well. We can bring the experts to the client in a clear and meaningful way.
We deeply love Oregon. We've traveled all over the world and seen some incredible places, but whenever we return we smile and know that this will always be home. We are passionate about Oregon's waters and love to explore the wilderness. So, if we're not in the office, we're probably in the wild. Or at a kid's event. There are a lot of those.
