We know the right things to do
to help our clients achieve their vision

Cognativ was initially created to provide strategic advisory services to help companies increase their valuation, define their customer journey, address issues preventing growth and perform due diligence on potential acquisitions.

Cognativ created software engineering and technology teams to help clients execute on innovative product ideas and create platforms, automate processes and build and manage mobile and web applications. Our goal is to always deliver solutions quickly, with high quality and an excellent ROI – all founded on trust and transparency between Cognativ and the client.

The name Cognativ combines the words cognition and innovative suggesting ‘thoughtful innovation’. Since its founding in 2016, Cognativ has quickly expanded beyond the USA to include teams in the UK, Serbia, Spain and India with clients across the USA and Europe.
