The Story

In 2005, we were founded by a Big Kid with big dreams. Fresh out of college, Slingshot was built on the idea that creating impactful software comes from being intensely inquisitive while remaining adventurous. That dream remains 15 years later, as Slingshot has grown a culture embracing creativity, fun, and exploration. With age (and a couple of gray hairs) comes wisdom, but it’s clear the spirit of adventure is still alive. Most importantly, Slingshot still defines success as building software that has a profound impact for their clients.

About Mary Clyde testimonial

"Slingshot understood our unique vision; it was clear they had a high level of expertise. They came up with a solution that fit our needs, and we felt involved during the entire process. We plan on working with Slingshot again, and see them as partners rather than another software vendor."

Mary Clyde Pierce, MD | Professor of Pediatrics | Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago
