Conseev was founded with one goal: to streamline the process of creating, launching, and operating SaaS and web-based service businesses. Part incubator, part contract house, and part something else entirely, Conseev brings stability to the always-turbulent phase of starting new businesses.
After building two web-based software companies, founder Ben Roy began looking for a better way to take more ideas from vaporware to reality with less hassle and in less time.
One of the biggest issues was having the right people available at the right time. By assembling a complete team in advance, Conseev is able to deploy resources exactly when they are needed, resulting in significantly faster time to market.
Another key advantage of this incubator-like model is technology re-use. Many elements of SaaS businesses are nearly identical, and more importantly, contribute minimal value for customers. By drawing from a shared library of often-used capabilities like billing or registration, timelines are compressed and costs are cut.
One recent project went from first concept to live site in less than 6 weeks. This represents a significant advantage in a rapidly changing marketplace where the lifespan of an idea can be measured in months.
Ben takes personal responsibility for making sure things never get boring. Any time it seems like the team is getting it’s arms around everything, he’s quick to jump in and stir the pot.
To give the team a fighting chance, Ben tries to spend his time off the computer with his family, traveling in search of adventure, pursuing his latest hobby of obsession, or occasionally even hitting the gym.
When all 12 of his video cards and his 42 monitors are up and running, Branden is usually buried up to his eyeballs in code trying to keep up with Ben’s latest schemes while keeping his cat away from the reset button.
In his few spare minutes he’s either working on dulling his hearing with is favorite song of the week, playing the latest release on Steam, or rebuilding the liquid nitrogen cooling for his computer.
Also sometimes called “Lead Supergluer”, Juan makes things work. He makes sure things get done across multiple projects. He’s always ready to take on any challenge and usually has to.
They say he can plow through a task list with his eyes closed, but we tend to think he just doesn’t sleep.
Your classic international man of mystery, Juan never gets too comfortable in one place. There’s no way to be sure which time zone you might catch him in.
Once a respected Kung Fu practitioner, Raúl has since discovered that shaving his beard in strange ways can have adverse social effects.
He now looks like a normal person again but has kept Kung Fu as an obsession. He uses this ancient art to bend code to his will, or occasionally to the will of a project manager or business owner.
Most of what was known about Craig was lost in a tragic hamster wheel accident almost 10 years ago. We have a team of anthropologists sorting through the remains and will publish the results.
Some call her “Lady Mystery”. We just call her Cecilia.
We’re talking to eye witnesses who’ve had run-ins with Lady Mystery to see what we can find out. We’ll update that info here as soon as we’ve finished going through it all.
Tom has the unenviable job of trying to keep our throngs of servers in line. Not an easy task balancing security, performance, demanding customers, and demanding teammates – but somehow he manages to get by.
When he’s not tweaking settings, fending off DDOS attacks, or helping a user recover from some self-inflicted malady he’s…who are we kidding, we don’t allow Tom to have time off. If we did, he’d probably catch a few hours of sleep or feed his cat.
