How Select Start Studios is pioneering the way hospitals are using mobile with co-founders Tariq Zaid and Adam McNamara

Here’s a great story – and not because they are an Ottawa-based company – but because they have managed to do something that many more established companies have not been able to do and that is to penetrate the health care system and change the way they use technology.

Select Start Studios is a small but growing mobile app and game development shop with some impressive clients who are pushing the boundaries of mobile use – thanks to co-founders Tariq Zaid, Adam McNamara and their talented team.

If you are wondering how to land your first big client in the mobile space or if you want to hear a great story about an emerging company doing some great things, give this a watch.
