Creating Innovation

Innovation / Mobile / Technology

Raizlabs was founded in 2003 with the vision to improve lives through design and technology. We’ve been successful growing one of the country's most prestigious agencies focused on mobile technology and product innovation. Today, I’m incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be expanding our impact and influence by joining the Rightpoint team.

We believe that the future of agencies is in digital and are excited at the opportunity to build that future, today. When we look at how large agencies operate we see two trends; the first are advertising agencies that have taken on digital, the second is strategic consulting companies that have taken on innovation. While both are interesting, we think there’s a unique opportunity to become the largest independent digital agency. Being digital first means that we focus on creating real actionable change first, rather than just talking about or advertising it.

As we’ve grown, we’ve been able to build hundreds of products and impact millions of people through our work. We’ve helped people get healthy, have families, find care, help the visually impaired, raise money for charity and countless other projects, What we’ve seen time and time again is that companies need more than just a mobile app, they need a team to help them solve their company problems that isn’t bound by any technology limits. As we set out to solve this, we realized that it made sense for us to partner with a company that has complementary skills, technologies, and a geographic footprint.

We believe that Rightpoint + Raizlabs is greater than the sum of its parts and our work on new technologies from AR, VR, AI, Voice, and mobile can be the catalyst for greater innovation nationally across both companies. We believe our work in IoT can be transformative in the new verticals that we’re entering, including the healthcare and medical spaces. We trust that the agency of the future is not only digital first, but is centered on creating lasting organizational impact. We’re excited to be part of that.

In addition, I’m personally excited as my new role as Chief Innovation Officer will allow me to focus 100% of my energy on driving design and technology innovation across the joint organization.
