Our Mission
Millions of business owners and employees compromise on their lives and burn out for replaceable or automatable “bullshit jobs“. 

Our mission is to mentor, educate and empower leaders to get more meaningful work done, in less time, collaboratively.

Our Projects

Ethereum Foundation

ConsenSys

The ConsenSys CodeFi team are building and releasing products quickly to build a DeFi infrastructure for Ethereum. Together we were able to prototype and test three products faster than ever before: Alloy, Activate and ETH Calculator.

Ramp Instant

Ramp is a fast European FIAT to crypto onramping process which lets your bank prove your identity. Together, we prototyped, tested and polished the user flow.

It won the Best UX in DeFi prize at Devcon 5. 

Fluence

Our friends at Fluence built a protocol that allows not only a decentralised and monetisable cloud storage, but an entire decentralised cloud service provider.

Together we designed a prototype for developers to build applications with services, host them and earn money by releasing their work to the public.

Hummingbot

Hummingbot is a bot for automated margin trading with cryptocurrencies. As a simple tool for market making that can provide liquidity to exchanges and protocols, they coined the term “Liquidity Mining” and are making automated trading accessible to the public.

Together we prototyped and tested a GUI for their CLI, redesigned their entire website and designed the Liquidity Mining interface.

Molecule

Molecule aims to decentralise the pharmaceutical industry by directly connecting investors to research teams and potentially patent new medical discoveries on a blockchain.

Together, we designed and user tested an MVP and learned when and how the market would be ready for it.

Our Thoughts

Shifting to remote work has been turbocharged, will you be a winner or a loser?
Shifting to remote work has been turbocharged, will you be a winner or a loser?

The current climate has shown the businesses around the world the unthinkable was possible — employees can work from home or away from a central office. It’s got the potential to ruin productivity, creativity and employee health and wellbeing.

Teams have a very special dynamic when they work together and you are not always lucky enough to have the perfect, most synergetic team, that needs 30 minutes and it the problem is solved.
You can use this exercise to replace all unstructured discussion with a clear process, when you don’t even need to know the people you are working with!

Three steps to avoid burnout and depression in a remote team
Three steps to avoid burnout and depression in a remote team

Let’s face it, most remote teams lack the ability to foster transparency. Often, the lack of transparency propels depression and self worth. If not addressed, remote team contributors feel undervalued. Here at Deep Work, we discovered a process with simple tools to boost your team in a healthier and more productive manor, especially in a remote environment.

The future of crowd sourced global problem solving
The future of crowd sourced global problem solving

On February 19th we ran an experiment — what if we guide several teams at the same time through Deep Work Sprints, with each time working on a similar problem? In the following I will describe how we did it, what the results look like and how we can scale Deep Work Sprints into infinity, thus creating a structure for solving very high-stake problems in a short amount of time with very little resources.

Using design and systems thinking to diagnose complex health problems
Using design and systems thinking to diagnose complex health problems

Experts estimate that the rate of medical misdiagnosis is somewhere between 15–50%. The errors in the medical industry cost a lot of time and money, but most importantly, many human lives. We attempt to create a platform for the rapid diagnosis of complex medical conditions using telemedicine that leverages cross-sectional expertise to rapidly identify possible problems that any single physician might miss.

How to prototype anything in one day
How to prototype anything in one day

If you think that building a prototype to test your idea is difficult, requires a lot of resources or a skilled team, you might be right. But building prototypes for nearly anything for the last two years I found a few ways to make the right compromises, even if you don’t have a high end production studio.
