In 2009 we decided to leave the corporate world and set up on our own. We wanted to be our own bosses, not so that we could sit at home in pyjamas, but because we believed that our skills were under-utilized, and we wanted to work with passionate, hard-working people who were not just cogs in a corporate machine.

We find the freedom and variety of small business life endlessly exciting, and we believe that the passion and hard work that prevails amongst small businesses contribute great value to the community

We also feel that services such as email marketing and quality web design have until now been targeted mainly at big business.

The proliferation of free and reasonably-priced quality software and web services means there is no reason why small businesses should not be able to make use of the best of modern web technology.
