History

In 2000, Amit Singh founded KANAK Consulting LLC, a “one-man shop” serving government clients – particularly those within the Department of Defense, DARPA, NASA, and the White House. In 2007, Amit and Mike Frentz, a colleague he’d worked with on multiple successful projects, decided to formally team up to expand the mission and scope of the company. In 2008, they adopted the trade name Asymmetrik, inspired by the concept of “asymmetric contribution” – the idea that minimal (but extremely talented) resources and unconventional approaches can bring about inordinate progress in the advancement of an organization’s mission.

Asymmetrik has a record of transforming fundamental(think “bread-and-butter”) processes within large organizations in a win-win scenario – by making available world-class expertise and a proprietary distributed requirements gathering process (known as SlipStream®) to organizations with whom they partner on a long-term continuing basis.

In August 2011, Asymmetrik transitioned into a corporation (Asymmetrik Ltd.), allowing it to evolve into an employee-owned company that provides greater opportunity, security, and equity-sharing to grow and reward its world-class staff.

Mission

Asymmetrik’s customer mission is to improve “how our clients do business” by combining their knowledge of their industry with Asymmetrik’s technological and analytical expertise.

“We work with enterprises with important missions to increase the effectiveness of intrinsic processes – sometimes by an order of magnitude.  It is amazing what is possible when working in concert with the right partner.”

They have the process, equipment, methods and, most importantly, the culture and colleagues that the modern software environment demands – and that most organizations (outside of Silicon Valley VC-funded firms) are hard pressed to either build OR sustain. They provide this singular resource to work with their clients as exclusive partners for their industry – rapidly iterating towards what are otherwise unattainable solutions meeting the needs of a continually evolving business or mission, especially needed in today’s dynamic and unpredictable business environment.

Asymmetrik doesn’t just concern themselves with the business environment. Their outdoor environment is also something that means a great deal to them. By their participation in Adopt A Highway's ® Sponsorship program, they are doing their part to help keep Maryland’s highways clean and litter free.
