Software by humans for humans.

Diskette does a lot of thinking and talking about software and how it can make life simpler and easier for everyone.

We are Diskette

As a team we are responsible for some really good things and have a track record of making things work for the better. We would like to think that we are full of good ideas and at Diskette we are setting about proving it. We are creating the brightest, boldest, iconic, industry-changing companies of the future.

Work for
the better

We are uncovering new ways of bringing software products to market. By combining a dedicated software team with a unique idea validation process, Diskette pops out fully formed micro-businesses ready for the world to enjoy. Diskette is a 'brain trust' that removes the guesswork out of the product creation and customer acquisition processes.

Diskette also manages a £150m private investment fund that backs startups founded by software developers. We don't invest in 'ideas men'. We invest in technical people with the vision and expertise to follow our proven approach to product validation. Getting product to market is a tricky business and we believe that a technical founder team is the single biggest contributor to success.

We make software applications that tackle big ideas. No apps. No little things. Big stuff only.
