Curious about what makes us tick? Here’s where you can learn all about the Chrono Innovation team. Dive into the details about our beginnings, our vision, our mission, and more.
During a brainstorm session, we asked our team what kind of challenges they faced on a daily basis. Based on the answers shared, we realized that these regular shortcomings could be remedied with a high-quality time measurement solution. It had to be something that was reliable, precise, and easy to use. From this concept, an idea was born. Next, the idea had to be brought to life.
Cancun, Mexico - January 2020
To focus on the design of this idea, the first Chrono Innovation development team packed up their ambitious ideas and headed to Mexico for a retreat. It was here, in a beautiful Mexican villa, where our Chronoscope time tracking tool became a reality.
Each day, we ideated, innovated, and created during outdoor, poolside work sessions. We enjoyed nourishing, authentic Mexican food prepared by a caring Mexican cook. We soaked up the hot sun and befriended the ever-adorable coati.
Each night, we relaxed over seaside dinners, took in the variety of talented street entertainment, and bonded over endless laughter.
From day one, Chrono has believed that the best results come from joint efforts. Combine that teamwork with a lot of fun, and the result is more than just a job — it’s a passion.
Our vision is more time to grow.
Time is part invention and part intangible phenomenon.
It’s measurable, it’s limited, and it’s infinitely valuable.
Time is the one thing everyone wishes they had more of, and that’s where we come in.
The products and services we offer our partners introduce efficiencies, implement practices, and establish procedures that ultimately create more time to grow.
Time to grow can translate to a new capacity to scale a company.
It can create an opportunity for product or professional development. It can be the crucial advantage that fearless small-medium businesses can capitalize on to achieve their goals.
Time to grow leads to momentum, evolution, and innovation.
Time to grow is the gift we give our partners.
Our mission is to arm upstarts with tools to adapt and thrive quicker.
Our partners are enterprises on the cusp of doing something incredible.
They’re ready to grow, to succeed, and to challenge the status quo, and we arm them with advantages that’ll make it all happen.
The thing with upstarts — the disruptors, the rebels — is that time is always of the essence. They strike when the iron’s hot, and carpe every single second of every single diem.
Our partners are fearless people of action who want to change things for the better. But, as they say, good things take time, so we create solutions that help them act with decisive, purposeful speed.
We build long-term relationships with our partners because we want to be the ones they turn to when the next opportunity to challenge, pivot, or adapt arises. We want to be instrumental to their growth.
We deliver innovative and creative solutions so our partners can remain focused, nimble, and daring.
Chrono Innovation is a workplace with a culture that supports employee growth and development, while also valuing their contributions to the organization. Life at Chrono promotes employee well-being, fosters positive relationships, and encourages productivity.
