About Neapolitan Labs

Our Mission

To provide businesses and organizations a foundational digital presence that delivers continual growth.

Our History

In 2004, Brian McMillin founded McMillin Web Development in Mount Vernon, Iowa. Throughout the following 12 years, he and his team developed dozens of websites for small businesses and organizations of varying sizes. With projects added each year, the team grew to accommodate the growing client portfolio.

In 2016, Neapolitan Labs was born during a rebranding retreat in Santa Barbara, California. A total rebranding strategy was executed over the course of 48 hours, including the launch of a new website and social media presences. The name is near and dear to our founder’s heart, combining two of his passions: technology and ice cream.
