😍✨ AE Studio x Edge of Company
Let’s zoom in on the globe from outer space to Abbot Kinney Boulevard, in Venice Beach, LA. Let me show you a cosmic tech beacon that shines out among the bustle of fashion, art and food there.
It’s a thriving software dev, data science and design known as AE Studio.
Scores of the sharpest minds in tech and design have come together to help founders and executives create custom software and machine learning solutions that are not only profitable, and increase our agency as humans but that give us that fuzzy, comfortable and confident feeling that only comes from sitting at the bleeding edge of tech.
Give their team unhampered autonomy to develop advanced or secret skunkworks style projects and they’ll deliver something such as ElectricSMS, an elegant transactional SMS solution AE sold to ReCharge for an undisclosed but likely hefty valuation.
The breadth of AE’s capacities allows them to build everything from health, fitness, and wellness apps that make your chakra’s tingle to award winning Brain Computer Interface solutions that almost literally bend our minds. Oh, and keep an eye out for their forthcoming NFT Whitelabel marketplace, as well as their highly anticipated NFT drop, BoomerNFT.
Now, for all you degens and those who strive to shed the cumber bund and pearls comes a jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring partnership not seen since Kobe and Shaq. It’s called Edge of AE Studio.
The full service, soup-to-nuts, end-to-end, whole enchilada NFT service helping you, yes you Randy, launch your NFT project. Edge of NFT and AE Studio have come together like Voltron to get your project in gear so you can high-tail it to the moon, stardom, and maybe a yacht.
*Actual results may vary including moon of planet, domain of stardom, and existence or size of your personal yacht
