New Partnership – Thorn Technologies
Great news! I just entered into an agreement to work with a software development shop called Thorn Technologies, one of Baltimore Business Journal’s top ten fastest growing private companies!
Our engagement is really broad and will include strategy work for Thorn Tech clients, sales of current products, building of the Thorn Tech brand through content creation and social media, and potential collaboration on startup projects. This will be much more than just a consulting gig; it will be a true partnership.
Thorn Tech has extensive experience building consumer-facing mobile and web applications, but they also excel at building back-end enterprise software, which allows them to provide unique, end-to-end solutions for its clients. Thorn Tech’s expertise fits really well with my experience designing and developing mobile apps and working with enterprise apps like CRM and marketing automation software.
I first worked with Thorn Tech President Jeff Thorn while I was at the Washington Capitals. He was a subcontractor for Acuity Mobile (acquired by Navteq), whose SMS platform we used to deliver text messages to our fans. Jeff also built the Caps Fantasy Challenge, which was a fantasy game delivered over SMS, online, and mobile web. Jeff is a really smart guy and he’s also a fellow Lehigh University alum!
I’m really looking forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with Jeff and his team. And if anyone needs software development work, please let me know!
