High Alpha turns to Studio Science to graft design into their business strategy and product development process.
High Alpha is a venture studio that conceives, launches and scales next-generation enterprise cloud companies. The founding partners, including three former Salesforce executives and Studio Science founder, Kristian Andersen, bring decades of startup, scale-up and enterprise experience to the art and science of company building.
Bringing a deep appreciation for the role of design in creating successful businesses, High Alpha engaged Studio Science to serve as their design agency of record.
Great design, which used to be a unique differentiator, is now a non-negotiable hallmark of any successful product company.
However, many young companies struggle with fully integrating design into their processes, particularly at the early stages in their maturation. Often times, the value of design as a methodology is understood, but difficult to practically implement, due to staffing, financial and resourcing constraints.
High Alpha’s desire was to move beyond the traditional agency / client relationship, and to embed a team of dedicated Studio Science designers directly into High Alpha, as well as into their rapidly growing list of portfolio companies.
Studio Science team members have deep experience across a range of disciplines, including User Experience design, User Interface design, web design / development, and brand and identity design. This range of experience allows the Studio Science designers embedded within High Alpha to directly influence the development of new businesses across a variety of industries and growth stages.
From developing customer personas, brand identity, pitch and sales materials and minimally viable product prototypes, to partnering with product engineers to design and develop the fully functional product—our designers are an essential part of High Alpha’s business creation process.
Studio Science has worked with High Alpha since its inception in the Spring of 2015. We’ve played a pivotal role in the launch 8 net new businesses that have gone on to raise tens of millions of dollars in funding and create hundred of new jobs in downtown Indianapolis.
We are thrilled to partner with High Alpha and look forward to continuing to support the launch of the next generation of enterprise software companies.
