Nymbl CEO Visits Alma Mater: Mass Maritime Academy, Discusses Future of Application Development and Tech

By Nymbl Headquarters - Boston, MA

Boston, MA, June 2, 2023— Nymbl's co-founder and CEO, Martyn Mason, visited his alma mater, Massachusetts Maritime Academy, to share invaluable insights with students enrolled in the International Maritime Business program. The session was packed with engaging discussions on current technology trends, industry recruitment strategies, and the organizational dynamics of running a successful consulting business.

Embracing Technology Trends: The Rise of Low Code / No Code Platforms

Mason highlighted the rapid acceleration in the demand for compelling software solutions and the challenges traditional software delivery methods face in keeping pace. He emphasized the transformative potential of Low Code / No Code platforms, which are revolutionizing the technology landscape by enabling non-technical individuals to develop apps. This democratization of app development adds structure and speed to enterprises, simplifies underlying technologies, and shifts the focus back to business processes. Development teams can now iterate more efficiently, fostering innovation and responsiveness to market needs.

Navigating Industry and Recruitment Challenges

Transitioning to industry-specific advice, the CEO offered students practical tips on how to get hired and succeed in technology and consulting companies. He discussed the unique pressures of balancing technology and consulting, explaining that while consulting companies typically specialize in specific services or technology implementations, successful integration requires a tailored approach to a company's processes and industry. This complexity, he noted, is where significant value and revenue are generated.

Running a Successful Consulting Business: Nymbl’s Organizational Concepts

Drawing from his experience at Nymbl, Mason shared insights on managing a 50-person, $5 million consulting business in 2023, contrasting it with his previous experience running larger companies with 100 to 150 employees and revenues exceeding $30 million. He stressed the importance of adaptability and understanding the distinct differences between B2B and B2C markets. For instance, B2B customers often have different buying habits, needs, and budgets compared to B2C customers, with businesses typically investing in large licenses rather than small subscriptions.

Empowering Future Business Leaders

The conversation provided students with a holistic view of the current technology landscape and practical guidance for their future careers. Mason's return to Mass Maritime was not just a nostalgic trip down memory lane but a meaningful engagement aimed at empowering the next generation of business leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in a rapidly evolving industry.

Nymbl remains committed to fostering connections between education and industry, ensuring that emerging professionals are well-equipped to meet the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow's business environment.
