Green Ant Labs was started out of need. We were looking for the best way to turn our ideas into products we could be proud of. As usual we had very little time, and even less money. It took us a better part of a year, but we were able to come up with a way to build software that delivers quality on a budget.
The secret is global teams. Just as Apple products are "Designed in California" and made globally our core Product, Engineering, and Design team is based in San Francisco, CA but we build our products in Ukraine and Russia. This way we can deliver quality products quickly and at reasonable cost.
Our friends around the Valley saw what we were doing, and started asking us to help them get their projects off the ground. We found out that we were having as much fun helping others realize their ideas as we were having working on our own, and Green Ant Labs were born.
