WTF is 3Advance_
Based in Washington DC, 3Advance was founded in 2010 to address the opportunities sparked by the opening of the iPhone App Store. Few developers knew how to make Objective C apps, and many were unwilling to risk their comfortable Web 2.0 gigs to pursue this new unproven technology. Now, in 2022, it’s estimated that App Store alone supports 2.1M jobs, and the app economy is thriving. Some of today’s most successful tech companies were born in the ashes of the Great Recession, adopting a “mobile first” philosophy that enabled a clearer focus on MVP than ever before.
Since 2012, 3Advance has produced 100s of apps across web, iOS, Android, and even on connected cars. We have opened up new markets for large organizations like NPR, and we’ve kick-started new businesses - taking greenfield startups from Zero to One, and beyond. While our obvious focus has always been on User Experience, under the hood, our commitment to emerging technology has kept us busy, and pushed us forward. In 2017, we reinvented ourselves as a Serverless tech team. This major investment enabled us to use the true power of the Cloud to provide low cost, and infinitely scalable infrastructure to our startup clients.
