TheLittleLoop makes Dragon's Den History

When we set out to build a new recommence platform for TheLittleLoop our primary motivation was to help make a dent in the fast-fashion industry a major source of pollution, waste and exploitation around the world. Since then The LittleLoop's mission has gone from possible to inevitable as described by one of BBCs Dragons Steven Bartlett .

They made the journey of project management, design, development, testing and launching the app such an enjoyable journey Thank you for your insight, instruction and direction guiding GROW every step of the way.

Jaco van Niekerk
Business Systems Manager
GROW Australia

Lakeside is ran by people incredibly knowledgeable about the business, HR, operational, architectural and infrastructural sides of IT. We’ve reached out to them when our company was going through a rough patch due to an abrupt growth in all areas, and a lot of scalability issues throughout. They helped us to build our QA and TechOps department in just a few weeks. They’ve helped us with building a streamlined DevOps methodology throughout the organization. Last and more importantly, they assessed our systems and operations and guided us throughout the migration of our on-premise system to the cloud. You don’t need to repeat other people’s mistakes – you just need a good IT partner like Lakeside to tell you how to avoid them.
