- What is the purpose behind this?
The FastApps Innovation hub, for startups and enterprises alike, exists to appify and bring ideas to life in days NOT months. Our mission is to challenge status quo using speed-tech solutions. Enterprising entrepreneurs with a viable business idea can depend on a tech-partner and an incubator at the hub to go to market in less than 3 months’ time. For enterprises who seek agility and rapid process innovation, we’re offering the system and the tech required to self-disrupt at speed. But, performance agility gets greatly enhanced if technology can give employees the power of mobility. To do radically new things and to do them well, to catch customers by surprise and competition unawares, to redefine existing markets and to create new markets where none thought existed. All at speed.
