Hi! I’m Richard Miller Hi! I’m Brian Rhea

Hello! We’re Richard & Brian.

We were CTO and Head of Product at a venture-backed and exited startup. Together, we help companies ship profitable software and we want to help you launch your idea.

As you know, shipping is hard.

Really hard.

There’s always one more tweak to make. One more feature to add. One more must-have to integrate.

One more something.

But there's good news …

You need to build less than you think.

If you're here, you've probably read some or all of The Lean Startup, Getting Real, and Sprint.

If so, we probably agree on a couple core principles:

The hardest version to ship is the first one.

Let's build it together.

If you need an experienced team to get unstuck or to get over a hump, we are the partners you're looking for. As entrepreneurs, developers, and executive members of multiple startups, we've been there and we feel your pain.
