Hilliard start-up Augustwenty solves ‘gnarly’ problems

Augustwenty LLC CEO Angela McManaway and CTO DJ Daugherty, married co-founders of the boutique software consultancy.

Of 31 employees at Augustwenty LLC, 29 had worked together at Pillar Technology, one of Central Ohio’s most lauded and fastest-growing software firms until its surprise acquisition.

The other two? A son and a brother of former Pillar employees.

“Something great came out of something great,” said D.J. Daugherty, co-founder and CTO of Augustwenty. “We were great fans of Pillar while we were Pillar – it was our phoenix rising.”

Founded just over two years ago in Hilliard, the boutique software consulting and development firm is headed for $7 million revenue this year and aiming for $25 million three years from now, said co-founder and CEO Angela McManaway.

With hybrid remote work, the company has an office in the Junction incubator in Hilliard, which allows the startup to reserve larger common space for client or staff meetings.
