About Curio

We believe that a good set of values keeps our people aligned with our vision to do interesting, creative work that solves for real-world needs.

Curio started in 2016 by Dr David Bowser, a neuroscientist and strategic adviser who sought to gather a group of creative people to work with clients on problems that need new thinking.

Curio are scientists, advisors, researchers, designers, developers, educators and technologists. We celebrate our differences and value diversity. 

We are tenacious and demanding, curious and creative, because seeing our work come to life is as important as doing the work itself.
