Our Story

After rocking the corporate world, we (Witt & Jen) felt the itch for a new adventureβ€”one where we could make a positive impact on the world. The idea of helping small businesses thrive and grow got us all excited, so we dove right in!

Our tech wizard, Witt, worked magic by rewriting a whopping 70,000 lines of code over two years. Fast forward, and now we’re proudly serving clients in more than 40 countries around the globe.

It’s been quite the journey, and we’re thrilled to have you along for the ride! πŸš€
