Launching at TechCrunch Disrupt

Down Arrow

Thoughtly Leverages AI

Thoughtly develops enterprise tools that leverage artificial intelligence to rapidly ascertain actionable insight from text. They have a distinct mission: to build tools that facilitate productivity by complimenting hyper-specific job functions. This focus on valuable insight permeates every aspect of their development efforts. 

Our Shared Problem

Thoughtly came to Stride with a singular goal: they needed to launch their MVP (Minimum Viable Product) in time for TechCrunch Disrupt. Thoughtly had been developing their core technology for almost two years and decided to demonstrate its capability by building a proof of concept application – IntelliButler, a content recommendation and scheduling platform – on their machine learning technology. Thoughtly partnered with Stride to ensure this would become a reality.

Our Desired Outcomes

  • Create MVP ready for TechCrunch Disrupt
  • Identify the scope and understand the entire back end and front end code base
  • Establish clarity on Plated's priorities
  • Make sure the code was high quality and robust and securely covered with TDD in time for TechCrunch Disrupt.

Our Impact

The demo at TechCrunch Disrupt went fabulously. Thoughtly not only impressed their target market, they found a new market they had never considered. The product was error free and dazzled attendees, enabling the Thoughtly team to have conversations they otherwise wouldn’t have had.

This success gain the attention of enterprise clients and positioned Thoughtly to expand their core technology into new industries.

"Stride was able to assimilate into our rapidly evolving company under absurd time parameters. They have project management and technical skills that are of the highest order. If you have the opportunity to work with them, especially when it matters, you are extraordinarily lucky."
