@heyflywheel  That's right...Flywheel is officially 5 years old! We're so proud of this incredible company we've built, and this is only the beginning. Happy birthday, Flywheel fam! ???

Behind the scenes of Camp Flywheel (our internship program!)

If you’ve been following along with us here at Life at Flywheel, you know we welcomed four smart and enthusiastic interns in May. Their 12 weeks with us have been one for the books (and have gone way too fast)! Our fabulous 2017 interns: Austin, Liz, Britt, and Robbie! Being part of Camp Flywheel (our whimsically branded internship program) means solving hard problems, contributing to needle-moving projects and company initiatives, and...

Our great LaCroix taste-off of 2017

While one of our Flywheel values is “We are hungry,” we also stay thirsty. And when looking for something delightful to drink around the office, there’s one clear winner: LaCroix. A popular alternative to sugary sodas, cans of LaCroix are a signature beverage here at the Flywheel HQ. With an average of 52 cans consumed per day (yep, that’s a real stat we pulled!) you’d think we’d know our stuff when it comes to flavors,...

How we celebrate anniversaries at Flywheel!

Here at Flywheel, we love to celebrate our accomplishments. But even more importantly, we love to celebrate the members of our Flywheel family! Besides monthly events like “Cake & Cocktails” (a.k.a. birthday parties), we love celebrating Flywheel anniversaries! Around the office, you’ll spot some colored bottle caps decorating desks and computer screens. These little tokens of gratitude are our way of saying thank you and recognizing our awesome team for their number of years with...

@heyflywheel  We're smilin' over here because it's #NationalDonutDay. And we take this day seriously. Very seriously. Like we might have artwork in our conference room that involves donuts. ? ? ❤️

Our bright and shiny new office!

When Flywheel first started, we were just a few people in a coworking space. In 2014, we hit a major milestone and moved into our very own downtown office. At the time, the 10 employees that made up Flywheel couldn’t imagine ever outgrowing our one-floor headquarters. But as you’ve probably noticed, we’ve done a LOT of growing over the last couple years – meaning our office needed to grow, too! Over the past year, we transformed...

Celebrating the Silicon Prairie (and Technologist of the Year!)

This week we got to attend the Silicon Prairie Awards, a night of recognizing the greatest minds in the midwest, right here in Omaha!

Members of the fly crew were nominated in three different categories, including: Collin Wyler for Student Entrepreneur of the Year Tony Noecker for Technologist of the Year Flywheel for Startup...
