About Us

Passionately focused on supporting transformation vs iteration, we have provided organizations with a combined technical/strategic and business-focused approach that re-engineers and puts the digital identity of the individual in the center of its ecosystem.

Out of one, many

Our Mission

We focus on solving digital identity disintermediation.  We work with game changers. Our approach is simple: architect and oversee what  leapfrogs for Government and beyond. We entirely customize solutions to your organization's business goals.

Our History

We view ourselves as “Anti-Consultants”. Any individual or organization responsible for P&L, foundational change or assigned to succeed in digital identity needs more than glorified presentation makers.

We have lived and breathed outside and inside the industry. We have run national programs. We have managed certifications. We have succeeded and failed in new business ventures. We have changed valuations. Most importantly, we believe in brute honesty, sharing pain, and helping those we genuinely like and share our values. This is what makes us Anti-Consultants. This is why our clients win.
