Joshua Johnson found his “fit” when he launched Mindbox Studios to help others right here in Cincinnati and beyond.
Technology is an ever-changing world, but Joshua Johnson is up for the challenge.
He launched his start-up, Mindbox Studios, in June 2007. Since then, his business has been providing technology services that are crafted especially for building custom web and mobile software for other businesses throughout the country.
“We approach each project with an agile-inspired methodology, which disciplines the team to build a Minimum Viable Product with frequent iterations based on results and customer feedback,” explains Johnson. “We act as an in-house partner for our clients, focused on using digital technology to grow their business.”
Johnson says that after the failure of a previous business, he launched Mindbox with a ground of digital agency visionaries and innovators. He and his team also noticed that it was nearly impossible to find a software company that works with innovative entrepreneurs, which encouraged them even more to move forward with the group’s new business plan.
In the years since Mindbox Studios officially launched, it has grown to more than 20 employees with offices in Cincinnati, Denver and Eugene, Oregon. Some of the businesses’ clients include those from industries such as the government, manufacturing, education and healthcare.
Some of the services offered from Mindbox Studios include mobile development, website design and development, technical strategy, responsive design, E-commerce, technology integration (also known as API Development) and startup consultation and planning.
“Our goal is to build a growing, best-in-class technology innovation team,” adds Johnson.
The team at Mindbox Studios, in addition to their growing client list, has a lot in the works. Johnson says that there are a few projects they’re involved with outside of client work that they’re excited about. “We’re working with a handful of kids, now 18-20 years old, who have grown up in an orphanage in Haiti and have a desire to learn web design and mobile development skills,” says Johnson. “Mindbox is partnering with like-minded companies to develop a program to help them develop those skills and eventually offer their services to U.S. companies.”
Additionally, Johnson says that Mindbox Studios is interested in seeing more tech and startup activity in low-income neighborhoods and high schools throughout Cincinnati, although the pieces for a project like this haven’t fully come together yet. Johnson believes that if his team can provide access to the resources, skill training and funding these kids needs then they can help support another revolution in tech in the Cincinnati region with job creation and an increase in demand. “That will be good for everyone,” he adds.
