We have a few exciting projects in our lab which we are preparing to release over the next year. This includes the next 2 iterations of the 15desks platform.
Our team is made up of highly driven entrepreneurs with track records of success.
We are led by our veteran CEO who has been integral to several companies from start-up to exit. His vision and experience has helped transform 15desks from a single service to an academic platform. Together, our talented lead developer and our marketer founded the company and have overseen the growth of 15desks since it's inception in late 2007. One of the two has been known to don a full Ninja outfit and create film shorts reminiscent of Bruce Lee if he were in public places . . . somehow these find their way to YouTube. The other can weekly be found behind a beaker studying hop stability and bitterness levels. We also benefit from the talents of our API developer who joined the team in the Summer of 2008. Enjoying both hoppiness and 1980's martial art movies, he fits right in.
