We were founded in Seattle. Late 2014 we moved to sunnny Colorado. It is fantastic here. The sun is excellent for productivity.
We now live a world where work can be done across the globe. We have clients across the country. We conduct face-to-face meetings with travel and via Hangouts (or similar).
We are called Near Apogee because an apogee is the "highest point in development" and we are always moving towards that with our clients. The idea stuck and it is a constant reminder of what we are to strive for!
