About TIP

The Idea People is a Charlotte, NC-based technology company that was founded in 1994 at the beginning of the dot-com boom in Atlanta by Bill McCown and Jay Joyce. As an early IT tech startup, we focused on web design and emerging web technologies for B2B, manufacturing, legal, sports and corporate clients that needed to adopt the web into a dynamically growing connected world.

We relocated to Charlotte in 2006 to focus on mobile technology and app software as an emerging market. In our 26+ years, we still build digital platforms to deliver exceptional client and customer experiences. Our top services include Business Transformation, Software Development and Web Design

Clients engage with us to leverage our industry knowledge, cutting-edge technology, creative thinking and power of scale to deliver custom solutions and change to your business. Economic times today are disruptive and overly competitive. All businesses must maximize their earning potential while driving market differentiation through modern apps and technology. Our company is strong, capable, experienced and passionate about solving client problems. And we're proud that we've been doing this for more than 26 years.

Pro Bono

We all enjoy the relationships with our non-profit partners. We see pro bono work as a direct reflection on our brand, so we commit long-term with our non-profit partners. But it's more than just resources for these partners, it's really about believing in what they do in our community.
