Creative Village recently had the pleasure of hosting two of New York City’s most innovative businesses; Aurnhammer, LLC and ShopKeep. Bill Aurnhammer, Founder of Aurnhammer, Karen Pattani-Hason and David Olk, Co-Founder of ShopKeep signed on to share how brands are navigating the mobile space and how mobile and the cloud has changed point-of-sale.
Aurnhammer is a creative media, design and development firm specializing in branded smart device applications for the mobile space. They have an impressive list of clients including but not limited to Sony Music Entertainment, Showtime Networks, The New York Jets, Bowers & Wilkins, Stanley Hand Tools and Russian Standard Vodka.
ShopKeep is an iPad Point-of-Sale system (POS) that gives merchants the power to run and analyze their business in an elegant, easy-to-use and cost-effective cloud-based interface. Merchants can load and manage inventory, track customers, and get robust reporting and analytics for their business. In addition, merchants can access real-time sales remotely via their iPhone to monitor stores even when they are on the go.
Both businesses began as startups at the downtown co-working space, the Hiveat55 located at 55 Broad Street. Aurnhammer and ShopKeep blossomed within the Hiveat55 space and later grew into new locations at the 55 Broad Street address. Business is growing in both of their industries and we expect to see continued innovation and creation from these companies.

See Aurnhammer’s creativity expressed in a mock-up of what could be Creative Village’s mobile app design and ShopKeep’s persuasive explanation on why several new businesses will utilize ShopKeep as their future POS provider.
Several Creative Village NYC Meetup members and guests attended the event including; Alison Minaglia, CEO of Technology PR, Justyn Markarewycz, Employee Relations Specialist from Baruch College and Ray Kasbarian, CEO of Zypline. Thank you to everyone who was involved and helped put this experience together and a special thanks to Donn Gobin from Aurnhammer for presenting us with the opportunity to partner. Creative Village looks forward to continually bringing our community opportunities to promote, exchange and partner with creative industry professionals.
