In the summer of 1999, Ryan Ozimek and Grey Frandsen were with an NGO in Albania during the conflict in the Balkans. It didn't take long for them to see a challenge for those trying to provide humanitarian assistance to those in need: the technology they'd seen built back in California simply wasn't available to on-the-ground responders in Kosovo.
After returning to UCLA for graduate work, their mission was clear: create a technology company that provided technology services that empowered the missions of organizations to more effectively provide much needed services to their constituencies.
