[ˈambɪt] noun

a sphere of action, expression, or influence: scope

In mid-2016, three experienced entrepreneur executives came together to form a business. The group of thought leaders took a top-down approach to finding momentum technologies, ideal markets and a validated niche product with an accelerated path to demand. In December 2016, the three founders, Josh, Tim, and Gareth began building a product which has become the foundation for Ambit.
