As the weather heats up in Louisville, we decided to bring more friends to the Slingshot party. Our newest big kids and daredevils are smart, talented, and pretty cool. We can’t wait for you to meet them.
In January, we officially launched The Slingshot Ventures podcast titled The Founders’ Fable. We’ve been blown away by the response! We’re so glad you like listening to a hawk, a platypus, and a stingray talk with entrepreneurs about their journey.
Since March 16th, 2020, Slingshot has been operating almost 100% remote (Well, we do have one of our 3 Chris's still holding down the fort. How’s the office, Chris?).

When user testing is brought up, there is sometimes push back: why would you want to spend time and money up front when you already know what you need? In our experience (all 16 years of it 😉), we’ve seen quite the opposite: you don’t know for sure what users need until you test with them.
Our team of developers have a wide range of expertise's and personalities. Each one had a different journey to get to where they are. Whether you’re an aspiring developer, or you’re looking to learn more about who we are, here’s a look into some of our development squad.
Today, software development needs a research phase to help you understand your users problems as well as the best way to solve them. How do you successfully complete a research phase, why it’s important, and what happens if you skip?
We're getting closer to the end of Q1, as well as Springtime! As the flowers start to bloom and weather gets warmer, we're happy to announce that our work-family has grown by 5! We're excited for you to meet the new members of our Slingshot team.
Our 4th episode of The Founders' Fable has us talking with Steve Huey: a Kentucky entrepreneurial Hall of Fame Mentor of the Year who's an expert in integrating cutting-edge technologies into existing markets.
Almost everyone knows the saying time is money, but what does that mean for development?
While the idea of getting to market as quickly as possible seems like the best option, there are some major setbacks in overall cost and time if you rush.
In this blog, we'll discuss how the true saying should be earlier is easier, the consequences of waiting to make changes, and the importance of getting feedback as soon as possible.
We’ve discussed the costs and steps involved in creating a mobile app, as well as how to publish your app in the app store.
