PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In Jordan Bryant’s world, there’s an app for everything. And if there isn’t, he’ll develop one.
The 26-year-old is Director of Mobile Strategy at Emerge Interactive. He helps companies develop apps for the emerging smartphone world, which is increasingly how millennials connect. Mobile now outpaces desktops for access to the internet.
“It’s kinda like the way the world is moving, so we just have, I think, less time commitments, being younger, to be able to devote time to, you know, experiencing that stuff,” Bryant tells KOIN 6 News.
Bryant and his colleagues at Emerge have an office in downtown Portland, but they don’t really need one.
“I don’t have to be in a physical location. I take my laptop, this is my office right here,” says Bryant. “I see that being more, happening more often with millennials, definitely, because technology allows for that. You can start a business overnight with a computer.”
Bryant says it allows for a lot of freedom.
“Absolutely. Freedom is absolutely a priority, I mean, you’ve only got one life!”
Bryant says the future of apps is almost unlimited. He anticipates more apps that integrate all parts of our lives, like exercise and travel.
And when a busy entrepreneur like Bryant needs to disconnect, he uses a meditation app.
