Appnovation powers the world with open technologies
Arnold LeungFounder

Appnovation delivers UX/CX, development and support for high-performing, feature-packed, digitally transformative experiences.

What was the company’s journey like to get to where it is now?

I founded Appnovation about 11 years ago right out of the University of BC. At Appnovation we drive digital innovation to enable a better connected world that allows for much better customer experience, much better user experience and enables people to know more about what they can get from digital applications. For example, we help the national health authority in the UK, the NHS deliver their blood donation and organ transplant programs to ensure that patients are getting the best care that they can get.

What is it about your company's culture that drives success?

At Appnovation, we have no barriers in communication between our teams and there’s not much of a hierarchy. The whole idea there is that we want to ensure we get the best out of our team members, to be able to be creative, to be able to find solutions to problems. That’s why the openness is so important for our success.

How do you as a leader ensure that your culture, is a culture, that creates success?

As a leader, I drive success by empowerment. At Appnovation, we empower teams to make a lot of decisions. A lot of them have the freedom to make choices and this kind of freedom and this empowerment, it’s what allows us to be a creative innovative company.

What’s Next for Appnovation?

If you were to ask me where Appnovation would be at in 2 years time I’ll be excited to tell you that Appnovation would have expanded to new markets in Europe. We hit about 50 million dollars in revenue this year with about 300 staff members globally. We want to double that up in the coming few years, and grow globally beyond where we are right now. Right now we are in the US, Canada, UK, Belgium, Netherlands and Hong Kong. We want to be in the rest of Europe. I would describe Appnovation as an innovative, culturally vibrant, exciting company for people to work at and I would welcome anybody who is looking for opportunities in the technology area to come apply for positions at our company.
