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 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. We also manage a £150m private investment fund that backs startups founded by software developers.

At Diskette, behavioural science informs everything we do. In order to react to the very latest societal changes, we collect a vast amount of data analysing human activity and interaction. When patterns of behaviour emerge, we apply principles of neuroscience and behavioural economics to develop software solutions that change things for the better.

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