Proof of Concept (PoC)

Ever since the publication of The Lean Startup, companies have been using the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) as a way to demonstrate the feasibility of their ideas.

Taking it a step further, for the past three or four years, companies have been adopting the Hackathon experience as a way to find new innovative ideas and verify that a concept or theory has the potential of being useable.

Our team has been traveling around for three years participating in these competitions for a couple main reasons.

  • Team Improvement
  • Process Improvement
  • Networking

However, something unexpected evolved from this journey, our R&D Lab, Vertical Play, a five day approach to solving real problems with real solutions. Watch this video…

Why Should You Care?

Simple, we’ve been able to use our PoC process within other companies to produce massive results in five days for our clients.
