Ravetree, LLC is a privately held software company with headquarters in Raleigh, NC, USA. It was founded in 2013 by Davidson Wicker and Jason Breault. They believe that agile is the future of project management. However, as agile began to cross from the software development industry to other industries, there are not many agile tools that these industries, such as in professional services and digital agencies, can use. They decided to provide a work management solution that not only handles projects, but also customers and employees.
