Client Thoughts

Jeff Conn Lead Case Writer, Stanford GSB Lead Case Writer, SGSB Co-Founder & CEO, Beam

Fortana is amazing—they rebuilt our product and totally saved our business. They balance deep engineering skill with intuitive design sensibility. I would highly recommend them to any startup in my Stanford network. They’re the best.”

Now, a Reality Check

Reality Check

Innovation is messy. Mistakes will be made. You will prioritize the wrong features and we will ship the occasional bug to production. But that’s okay. Perfection is not our goal.

Nor is our goal to build exactly what you have in mind. Why? Because successful products depend on healthy debate between business, design, and engineering.

Our goal is to help you create users. Users excited to log in. Users that spread the word.
