Our goal & mission
“Our mission is to build, develop and work on industry-changing ideas that make peoples lives in business easier and more efficient”
Jackson Howell, Founder
Riselabs ❤️’s startup ideas
Riselabs now has worked on hundreds of client projects, some did not come to be, lots are alive and thriving, and many still ongoing with our skill-diverse team. We particularly like working with startups, both small and corporate-level, as our expertise thrive in a challenging environment where we know the end goal, but need to work out all of the puzzles to get there.
The company name, Riselabs, is a mix between two concepts: to “rise” and fly, growing and launching into the world. And “labs“, the idea of a laboratory-type environment where ideas are experimented on and eventually graduate to real world-helping products or services.
The logo is our airship! I, the founder, love airships and a little bit of steampunk. I loved the idea that Riselabs – as a concept – was always striving to build better technology to “fly” and that the airship represents those advancements in technology.
You’ll see things “launchpad“, “flying” and “airborne” dotted around in our language. As our logo is an airship, we use these metaphors to promote taking an idea from the ground, in a hangar, to flight.

Now fully remote, we begin to work with developers and designers across the globe
We discovered that no longer being tethered to a physical location meant we could work with clients anywhere in the world without restriction – including bringing in team members from other countries with incredible design and development talents.
Riselabs continues to work on ever-increasingly bigger projects + a brand update
Although 2020 has been an… interesting year for businesses, we took on a few fantastic projects. Plus, working with an incredible local designer, we worked together to refresh the Riselabs brand and logo (which I originally put together in 2016 in a day!).
