About the Company

We don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but things have changed in the business world today. And there are basically two types of businesses that are excelling: (1) startups that know how to react rapidly and have the courage to take on problems that nobody else is willing to solve, and (2) corporations that have found a way to combine the nimbleness of startups with the manpower and resources of large institutions. Stringcan is an innovation agency that helps both startups and corporations create and implement digital strategies that set them up for this type of success.

The business model we’ve crafted is unique. We’re not a B2B company or even a B2C company. We’re a H2H company. That is, human-to-human. Our job is to help mid- and large-cap corporations and mature startups remove the internal barriers that are blocking them from success. And the way we do that is helping them reconnect to the human element that so many organizations have lost sight of today. This means creating organizational structures that put people at the center. It means showing people how to shift group cultures away from fear and towards innovation. And it means inserting empathy into the product design process again to allow companies to reimagine how they create.

And at the end, that’s what we’re concerned about. There’s a revolution going on across industries and borders right now. Some companies see this revolution as a threat and others see it as an opportunity. We show the threatened how to turn it into an opportunity and we collaborate with the opportunist to to be industry leaders. To make our vision possible, we need changemakers, disruptors, thinkers, and doers. If you fall under one of those categories, let’s talk.
