Client Testimonials

  • They lead us through go-to-market planning, strategy, and execution...helped us establish traction and position the company for growth, and enter new SaaS and Cloud Computing markets. The strategists have been working intimately with us from positioning to investment.

    A Board Member Stratus5
  • We quickly knew that testing and validating the consumer markets we were entering needed real numbers to back our marketing budget for our app and technology services. We used those metrics to pitch our company, close several rounds of investment, and successfully exit via acquisition.

    David Carlson, CEO METLOOP
  • After 1 year in fundraising, their marketing helped us raise awareness in the cybersecurity market that influenced our investors AND simultaneously supported closing a large Fortune-100 telecom purchase order. The marketing impacted the global markets and we've won awards in Silicone Valley for the unique strategies used.

    Garry Drummond, CEO 802 SECURE
  • The level of customer service to our C-level was superior, and the CMO showed real patience and grace under pressure. The interim-executive was charged with creating and implementing a market penetration strategy for our portfolio. It was clear from the outset that he had an incredible knowledge of the latest techniques and best practice in digital customer acquisition. He came highly networked within the technology and tech investor space. He was able to instantly grasp our technology and make useful and strategic connections. He is definitely able to see synergies between different groups that might not be apparent at first glance, which is a rare skill.
