Jennifer Gaze, Head of Smart Lab, USA, Mercedes-Benz

They have set the standard very high for themselves, for us, and for future hires that join our team. They are the benchmark against which we will measure future performance.

Socrates Rosenfeld, Co-Founder and CEO, Jane Technologies

Substantial provides a top notch team of developers and designers that can manifest your idea into an actual product - and teach you how to take their principles into the future.

Janet Verwolf, Technical Product Manager, WEconnect

Substantial had the fearlessness, and chops… There are very few companies out there that are experienced in creating large, interactive virtual workplaces. They quickly grasped how to translate our requirements into an executable, achievable, cost-efficient plan.

Demian Entrekin, Chief Technology Officer, Bluescape

Substantial did an amazing job taking a vague problem statement and turning it into an intuitive, innovative (and even beautiful) mockup and working prototype in a matter of weeks. Amazing!

Matthew Kropp, Managing Director and Partner, Boston Consulting Group

Let’s build a better future, together.
