Red Foundry is a mobile application design and development consulting firm. Founded in 2009, and led by seasoned business and technology executives, we help our clients “Mobilize Their Business” by creating award-winning native mobile applications for the iOS and Android platforms. Utilizing our mobile-optimized methodology, we partner with entrepreneurs and early stage startups to launch their mobile-enabled business, and we work with established corporations to build mobile products that support their digital transformation. It all began when we started building iPhone apps for fun, and a few of them became big hits. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we quit our day jobs and began making apps for other organizations like Pearl Jam and Kodak. After working in the trenches for a while we realized that building a great mobile app could be expensive, time consuming, and complex. So we set out on our journey to make building mobile apps easier. That’s why we started Red Foundry – to take our years of experience in building successful mobile apps and package it into a team of engineers armed with technology and process methodology to lower the cost, complexity, and delivery risk of building killer mobile apps. Red Foundry was built on these simple principles: All apps should be beautiful, unique, intuitive, and relevant. Any company, large or small, should have the opportunity to leverage the benefits of mobile app technology. An app is useless without a team of skilled people to support and evolve it. Every day Red Foundry tackles the tough challenges that face most businesses when going mobile. But most importantly Red Foundry apps are built by a team of software engineers who are passionate about mobile. It's all we do. And we love it.

SYNERGY started by helping mid-sized companies and startups build, launch, and brand its products into existing and emerging markets using modern technology and industry-specific marketing strategies. This was all a result of our personal struggles to get one of our internal products off the ground. We saw all the issues associated with outsourcing, poor discipline, bad communication and documentation, and not having a trustworthy team. And, as a result, starting up was a painstaking process. Eventually, we created a solid team and defined a set of processes that became our “secret” to success. After realizing the challenges that our company had to get through, our goal became focused on helping other startups build and grow. Our company in the last 36 months alone has helped build 20+ companies with 100 plus digital products. In today’s world, most startups waste 50 percent of their resources within the first year and we wanted to bring an end to that. By helping other startups become more efficient with their resources and guiding them past the challenges we faced, we hope to be a great help. We have helped over 20 companies in the past 4 years, and are planning on helping many more glide by the initial challenges and hardships that we had to endure.
