Hi there πŸ‘‹

Apps was founded in 2008, at the beginning of the mobile revolution when the internet truly became portable and small screens grew larger. It was a historic moment where the rules and expectations were redefined. We have always challenged the status quo and continue our quest to create user-friendly solutions that stimulate both hemispheres of the brain.

The best of three worlds

We have two business areas - consulting and ventures. Developing our own startups gives us the necessary insight and experience to provide our consulting customers with the very best advice.

Our team understands the importance of speed. We are keen on traveling light and moving quickly, so we can help our customers gain momentum. In other words, we know how to meet your early needs and we simultaneously have the muscle to support you throughout the whole lifecycle.

Innovation happens at the intersection of business, technology, and design. It starts with the impetus of competent and motivated people. And complex problems that are best solved in collaboration. We believe in the power of a good idea and ambitious customers wanting to change the world, one byte at a time.

Business

Good business understanding is the premise for all value creation. What does it take for an idea to grow large and independently? What is the rationale behind what we do? Is the business case valid? The questions are many - we have years of experience and can guide you in the right direction.

Technology

Everything revolves around technology. It's what brings ideas to life, makes them work, and provides us with opportunities we couldn't have imagined existed. Technology is what drives us forward. It's both exciting, scary, and inaccessible. But most of all, it's exciting. Right now, we are in the midst of a major AI revolution where hyper-automation is central. It's not science fiction but something that is real now. Can you afford not to get swept away by it?
