Our Mission is to transform the global enterprise through strategic innovation, breakthrough technologies, and executional precision.

Serve People First

People are the core of driving effective change in our society. Our business starts with creating an incredible environment for the brightest minds in technology. Our business succeeds when we’ve created experiences that our clients' customers and employees love to be a part of.

Empower Disruption

In a rapidly changing world, our job is to challenge The Norm and to make our clients First in their industry.

Inspire Creativity

We thrive on innovation, passion and change. We've created a culture where there are no bad ideas; only new ideas that will be embraced, evaluated and if appropriate, executed on.

Be Nimble

We are built to pivot. Despite the initial vision that is outlined for any project; we will adjust, mobilize and attack any new direction. We do not resist change, we embrace it.

Embrace Executional Precision

Our creative direction is enhanced with our engineers' understanding of what's possible. Our execution is grounded in solid engineering principals and quality-enforcing technologies.

Defy Gravity

In any organization, there will be resistance towards changing The Norm. We will use our quantitative research, positive attitude and empathetic tact to help our clients move their business forward.

Practice Introspection

Like our clients, we will continuously improve. Our systems and agile-based processes are designed to evolve as markets and needs change.

Make A Difference

Our work does not stop with our clients. It is a catalyst to empower us to make the world a better place. We will use our drive, influence and technological expertise to help others in need.

Technology can also be a catalyst to empower us to make the world a better place. Central to the Solstice mission is our ongoing effort to leverage our momentum, influence, and technological expertise to empower others, making it a priority to give back to the community through our philanthropic efforts with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, i.c stars, CHASA, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and VOA’s Operation Backpack. The incremental dividends of this approach are the team-building and personal bonds our employees have formed in these endeavors.
