About Us

What we do.
We create experiences that support brands, grow businesses, and make people’s lives better.

The ideas and philosophy that define the Nervana culture were incubated within the four walls of Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management during an Innovation Class held by the Chicago Innovation Awards. The purple in our colors give respect to the very foundation that gave us strength to redefine ourselves and break away from 0’s and 1’s and the rigidity of structure when building technology, but to take risk, to be naked, to expose our heart and emotions to the world and embed that in our software, in our thinking, in our culture and into our customers.

 

Balance is always good when it comes to designing solutions for modern day consumers and modern day businesses. But trusting your instinct is just as important as well as trusting your heart. Technology is an enhancement of life and a catalyst to progress for a more fulfilling life. Injecting emotions and feelings into technology is supposed to be impossible. Nervana knows it is possible. Born from the womb of the social web era, we only know what’s natural and what’s instinctual. We’re very simple creatures in this company. The ultimate result should always be Nervana for not only our customers, but for us as well.

 

Nervana is a stealth start-up that has been in development of a new software platform that consists of the cloud, mobile devices, as well as holy moly balls to the wall how the heck did you do that type of technology that is placed on location for the sole purpose of helping businesses deliver the best experience to their end consumer. Upon completing the software, we asked some pretty big names to view our technology and the response has been nothing but short of amazing. With the plethora of software vendors out there trying to do the same thing, some of the feedback has been:

"Nervana pays as much attention to their software as much as a Hotel pays attention to the brand. You guys simply not only get it, you’ve surpassed everyone else."

TIM HERMAN, GENERAL MANAGER OF RENAISSANCE LAS VEGAS HOTEL

"You’re the Apple of the Hospitality Industry"

KEVIN FRID, SVP OF FAIRMONT

"The elegance of your technology doesn’t ruin or alter the environment we have built within the Hard Rock, but enhances it almost organically."

STEPHEN WESTMAN, GM HARD ROCK HOTEL CHICAGO

"I’ve never outsold my specials until we implemented Nervana’s Social Menus. It’s truly amazing."

MIKE SCHATZMAN, OWNER OF UNION SUSHI BBQ BAR

"We’ve searched for mobile vendors who understand higher-ed and have found nothing. We loved Nervana’s philosophy around Generation D and heart-felt passion for addressing this new generation, we asked them to re-imagine our training. They are the new standard in higher-education"
