SidekickStudios style themselves as a social innovation company. The mission is to solve social problems using the internet. “We’re not a consultancy; we make things. We don’t do the tried and tested; we like making angels in virgin snow. We’re not interested in the technology; we’re interested in what it can do. We work for brands; we work in the public sector. We’re not defined by a channel; we’re defined by our mission to use the internet to create socially useful products and services. Let’s see how we go.”
