Our skin in the game. This is what continuously pushes us to be ahead of the wave, giving us invaluable insights and making us as innovative as possible.
Our founders Kishan and Wesley were both working in a field of companies who knew more buzzwords than they knew about how to execute digital innovation. Knowing or not knowing, these companies were screwing over clients day after day and restraining the world of digital innovation.
In 2013, Kishan and Wesley decided that the only way to fix this dreary and decelerating problem, is to start doing it themselves. And so Eli5 was born.
Both 24 at that time, they rented an office space in the Red Light district of Amsterdam, spent all of their money on computers and furniture, and started offering modern innovative methods to build digital solutions.
In the beginning they worked on smaller end-user solutions, often spending the day to do meetings and ideation sessions, and pulling all-nighters to design and develop the solutions.
The biggest mission when they started Eli5 was to build viable end user solutions the lean startup way, while guiding their clients through this jungle of digital, teaching them about what they were doing for them and why they were doing this. To this day, this is still what gets us up with a smile every morning.
