Problem Solutions is a team of passionate, enthusiastic, intelligent yet naively curious, and motivated makers of technology and products. They believe that often the biggest problem people face is actually articulating the real problem. They are good at solving problems. They are the best at defining problems. They are much easier to solve when they are understood well. They firmly agree with Einstein when he said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” They help people change the way they think about problems and consequently we deliver the best solutions for a well formed problem.
