oneUp is different. We exceed our customer's expectations and drive innovation to new levels. oneUp builds awesome stuff for large companies with intelligent teams. We do this through our unique method called Startup Thinking, an integrated approach to building startups.

In a blend of Lean Startup and Design Thinking we solve problems through creative ideation and rigorous validation with real customers. From prototype to scale-up: we offer an end-to-end solution and execute it.
