About Tagstand

Who we are

Technology should enable us. Too often our smartphones don't do that, adding frustration to our lives rather than freeing us. We believe that near-field technology can reclaim lost seconds and minutes in our day. We're a small team in SOMA, San Francisco, focused on building things, and enjoying ourselves along the way.
