Our Process

Deep Dive Discovery

We start here together. We listen and learn. Our process helps us peel back the layers of your unique group to truly understand who your organization is, what you stand for, and exactly where you want to go.
In this phase our focus is on:

  • Articulating Your Goals
  • Prioritizing Your Priorities
  • Identifying Your Target Audiences
  • Understanding Your Data Needs & Requirements
  • Pinpoint Your Pain Points
  • Funding Opportunities and Cost Considerations

Then it’s time to plan.

Strategic Plan & Budgeting

Akawe’s professional experience working in technology, consulting, and business operations, paired with our lived experience as members of under-represented groups, enables us to create unique technology-driven solutions.

Our proven planning process results in wise, innovative, and practical technology solutions that help you achieve your goals. In this step, we bring your idea to life, showing you:

  • How strategic imperatives will be translated with technology
  • How the solution achieves your goals and desired outcomes
  • How your data is to be managed, stored, and accessed
  • How the solution will look, feel, and work online
  • What the required investment will be

Knowledge is power. Now that you
know, let’s go!

Design

Layer by layer, we breathe life into your technology solution. In this step, we add design to your wireframes and copywriting to your story. Whether it’s a website, prototype, or app interface, seeing is believing.
