Grow beyond the box.

Updated: Feb 21

Hey there,

It's about time to recap the bigger picture of what we are doing at Silicon.Garden. I've been in the digital game for 25 years now, working in fields ranging from startups to banking to health. I can confidently say we have been making changes in the tech industry that are simply off the charts. We know what we're doing, and we're doing it right.


We've been advocating for revolutionary ideas like Lean, Agile, and Human-centered design for a long time. But we're not stopping there. We're ready to dive headfirst into an online world where location doesn't matter - and it never should have. The traditional approach was never fair. Additionally, we're preparing to harness the incredible shifts brought about by artificial intelligence - one of the two major forces of change in the modern world.

Nothing inspires me more than a group of bright people tackling a problem with the passion of saving the world. And the cool part? This isn't an exaggeration. The world needs fixing. We need to transcend our old ways of thinking, abandon outdated leadership styles, and stop getting distracted by agile theater and trivial matters such as home office policies.


We have some major challenges ahead:

  • We need to repair the planet.

  • We need to combat climate change.

  • We need to eradicate poverty.

  • We need to reform education.

I have a hunch that the underdogs and the creatives – the startups and corporate product teams – will be the ones to step up and enact the change we so desperately need.

Furthermore, we need to overhaul capitalism and democracy. This might sound strange coming from an entrepreneur, but there are countless people like me who view entrepreneurship as a driver of change and want to repair capitalism. One famous example is Yvon Chouinard of Patagonia. Just as sports aren't at fault for doping or injuries, capitalism isn't at fault for what we make of it. We urgently need to alter the rules of the game on a global scale, encouraging what’s good for the people and the planet and penalizing any damage to it.

I believe remote work is going to play a significant role in this shift as collaboration on a global scale will bring businesses and humans closer together. However, let's not deceive ourselves. Real change will come when the world's leaders start genuinely listening to the entrepreneurs outside the traditional power structures.

In the meantime, we'll keep doing what we do best. We're going to continue creating awesome digital solutions with our customers and partners. We're going to keep using AI to make healthcare safer and more affordable. We'll carry on innovating in the energy sector. And we'll persist in providing solutions that make life easier and more enjoyable for communities, families, and individuals. Plus, we will clean up any mess we leave behind.

Above all, we're committed to delivery! Let us help you stop the innovation theater and grow beyond the box.

Catch you later, Michael
