What our clients say

Working with Curve to develop Baby Moves meant MCRI were involved every step of the way. The process of co-designing with the team meant we were working collaboratively and felt supported in our requests. We saw a gap in the current processes that technology could bridge and it was great to work with Curve to achieve our goals

Ultimately, pairing with Curve on the AllergyPal project meant we were able to bring our idea to fruition with in-depth testing and a thoroughly collaborative approach. We felt like partners at every step of the way.
