Since 2014, Bear Studios has provided the most talented undergraduates with opportunities to freelance and provide startups and companies with business, design, and technology services and solutions.

Bear Studios offers our client businesses, which have ranged from major universities and national healthcare systems, to software and biomedical companies, a fresh perspective.

We seek to leverage our fellows' innovative mindsets and diverse skill-sets to give our clients a cost-effective alternative to the traditional consultancy, design, or development firm.



Our Bear Studios fellows in design pride themselves in creating exceptional work that is clear, streamlined, and sure to catch the eye of any beholder.


Our premier area of expertise, we specialize in guiding startups through their initial stages and in providing pre-existing businesses a fresh perspective.


Our experienced team has the capabilities for software development, Android and iOS application development, and Web Development.
