Improventions | the short story
Since 2009 my dream has been to live in sunny Penang, Malaysia, write good code on a beach, and run a company that produces great results without the overwhelming overhead that so many bigger companies suffer from. In May 2014 I realized this dream. Today, Improventions is of size 175 — cm! And likely to stay at this overheadless size. ;-)
Good improventions start from genuine fun! Even if the outlook is not all serious, the results are usually award-winning.
The services Improventions provides and the products it makes are built on the wide experience of software product development, inventions and innovations, solid scientific basis, and leadership experience. Application domains I have delivered award-winning results cover software business, industrial automation, power utilities, medicine, training & education, eldercare, accounting, construction, wellness, and entertainment.
Improventions acts as a founder node of a trusted network consisting of great freelance software developers, designers, and testers as well as leading scientists and consultants, which enables project teams to be formed based on the competence needed to solve a practical problem within the vast field of information technology... with ludicrous speed!
