Agile Ventures is an organization dedicated to crowdsourced learning and project development. We follow the Agile approach to software development and believe that great software comes from good practices, tools and methods: industry wide best practices, rapid prototyping, test-driven development and a user oriented approach to design.
Our team of developers range from senior software architects and mid-level developers, to junior programmers and students of computer science. Every project is run by a professional cross-functional team selected for the specific requirements of our clients and the work we are challenged with.
AgileVentures has successfully delivered dozens of small- and mid-sized projects to clients in the third sector as well as government run organizations and privately held companies in the UK and abroad.
We know that every client is unique and we strive to deliver an individual, innovative and affordable proposal every time and to follow it through with an outstanding delivery which is both on time and within budget.
Better software comes from our better tools and methods: Agile, rapid prototyping, Lean Startup. Let's talk about your non-profit, your people and your needs. We work with you to make your fundraising and delivery more effective with better Websites, Mobile, Apps, Process Automation and projects.
Our purpose is to enable non-profit organisations to become more effective and efficient. As a non-profit ourselves, our aim is your aim – to overcome obstacles so you can help thousands more people in need.
Our work is Open Source, so no licence fees, no supplier lock-in, instead open API’s and access to lots of free modules. Because we are non-profit, we pass on our lower costs: no overheads, lower staff costs and no VAT. If we build a shared platform for your solution, we can reduce your costs much further.
AgileVentures was founded to connect teams of students of software engineering with nonprofits and charity organizations.
All through 2013 the process and operations evolved. Hundreds of coders signed up for the AgileVentures community. Thousands of lines of code were written, re-written and polished.
More and more programmers get involved to contribute to good causes online, starting new and varied initiatives. At the end of the third year of it's existance, the community had active live coding sessions with developers on all continents.
More and more developers join AgileVentures, with membership moving into the 1000s. Charity Jamborees introduce many more charities to the benefits of working with AgileVentures.
In collaboration with UC Berkeley, AgileVentures is creating paid project courses. Agile Ventures Premium Memberships allow individual developers to get extra support in their professional development.
AgileVentures develops the Social Prescribing and Self-Care wiki for the UK's National Health Service (NHS) Healthy London Partnership (HLP).
The NHS renews and extends their work with AgileVentures, and the mentor incentive program is created.
Volunteer developers from AgileVentures take on new challenges and explore new technologies. Study groups covering Elixir, Python, Algorithms take shape and engage more and more community members.
We all suffered through a terrible ordeal. Businesses and nonprofits had to streamline operations and hold tight. Steadily, the stream of new projects dried up, and the ones the community was involved in got delivered and went into maintenance mode.
We are in the process of rebuilding the community and launching new initiatives to help our members grow. The commitment to Open Source and Open Development Process is what makes Agile Ventures unique. Our focus on Agile Methodologies and innovation makes us a perfect partner for your next software project.
