The Originate Mission
We invest software development in exchange for equity in startups. Like a VC meets software consulting firm. Instead of investing cash, we invest software development.
Originate was built around the idea that we could provide the perfect place for the best software engineers and entrepreneurs to work.
Originate is the product!
Our people, our process, and our unique offering is the product!
We partner with entrepreneurs looking for the ideal team to build their startup, or the Fortune 500 company needing an innovative team to build a solution they can't build on their own. Startups can be built wherever there is need to shake up the status quo. We also build our own incubated ideas.
We do approximately 50% mobile (iOs, Andrdoi) and 50% web (Scala, RoR)
Originate is made up of over 100 world class engineers, designers, product specialists, and business / operations experts.
We are based in SF with offices in NYC, LA, Vegas, OC, and Sunnyvale. We ave nearly 20 people in the NYC office and recently moved into a new space at 60 Madison Ave.
Life at Originate
The new office at 60 Madison Ave is awesome. Very cool space!
Awesome people, Agile, dynamic, fast moving, hard-hitting!
Everyone at Originate is doing exactly what they want to be doing.
If we could all pick up the phone and have an offer at Google, Twitter, Facebook, or any other startup we want, then we must be doing something right when we all stick around to work on this big "Originate" project we're all so passionate about!
