Those who've helped
It all started when...
Like most typical startups Instigate.ai has been founded on the sweat and hard labor of many.
This page gives credit to those who helped - early on.
Richard Tong is the programmer who created Instigate's first prototype mockup demo. he took the work that Fred Fortier (see below) first created - and ran with it. Richward worked closely with Marc - developing the initial Conversation Manager and interacive storytelling experience.
Sam Kleeman helped out Instigate in the early days - and we thank him for that.
Grig Bilham was the very first coder - ever - to work on Instigate. Grig learned Facebook Messenger and built an initial mockup.
For that - we'll love him forever.
Grig lives out in Forest Grove and has a studio on Cesar Chavez in SF.
Dave Hoffman helped us get our minds wrapped around the concept of a Personal Bot that should be shared.
Sharing is the foundation of our world - and gosh darn it - Instigate Personal Bots - shall be shared!
Dave helped us figure that out and for that - we'll love him forever.
Dave lives down in Santa Cruz.
Fred Fortier was introduced to us by my friend Arsene Lavaux.
Fred built the entire first version of Instigate - all by himself - and for that - we'll love him forever.
Fred seems to be very busy - with plenty of other things to do - than help us!
Fred is based in Toronto and Florida.
Jim Andrews is a writer who helped us create the initial set of Topic based dialog for Instigate.
He's great - we love him.
Jim is one of our secret weapons up in Vancouver, B.C.
