Fargo, North Dakota-based Myriad Mobile has officially opened an office in Minneapolis to accommodate the growing demand for their mobile design and development services.
Founded in 2011 by NDSU grads Jake Joraanstad and Ryan Raguse, Myriad creates both consumer and enterprise apps on iOS, Android and Windows for the likes of Bobcat, Microsoft and MPR — among many others.
The firm has doubled collective headcount to ~50 since February this year and already operates in Chicago, Kansas City, Atlanta, Denver and LA. The Minneapolis space (2.300 sq. ft.) is found in the Warehouse District at 212 3rd Ave N and will start with a staff of four business development directors.
“Things really started taking off earlier this year,” says Marketing and Communications Manager Camille Grade. “We do anticipate growing more in the Twin Cities as we pursue our grand plan to be a major player in the mobile market.”
Myriad is also the driving force behind Midwest Mobile Summit, an annual Fargo gathering that draws ~300 for a conference similar to that of Mobile March held in the Twin Cities for years. Minot, North Dakota native Mike Derheim and CEO of The Nerdery is an advisor to the company while active local VC Arthur Ventures claims Fargo as their home base.
To celebrate, the team is hosting an open house on Thursday, July 10 from 12:00 – 2:30 at 212 3rd Ave N, Ste 390 in Minneapolis with hors d’oeuvres and beverages.
