Germinate: to come into existence, to develop.

We're firm believers in nurturing ideas.
Like every seed, ideas need the right elements applied to allow them to take root and sprout into what they were designed to become.

That's where we come in. 
Let's apply some really great elements to your ideas.

Luci Chaves

Luci, our Content Strategist, moved to Michigan from Costa Rica in order to study business at Davenport University and Bible at Grace Christian University. Her main passions are building relationships with people, helping them improve in any aspect they need help with, and looking at puppy pictures online. Outside of the office you can find her playing soccer, hiking, and camping. Her favorite season is fall because it’s just like what Christmas feels like in Costa Rica.
