2nd Stage tech firms are ready to get serious about marketing to drive awareness, value, and leads to fill the sales funnel. And your investors want to see the results.
When we live and operate consistently by a set of core values, our clients should always have a truly remarkable experience with us: Trust, Excellence, Kindness, Endurance, and Integrity.
We believe trust is the most important ingredient to success in business relationships, and in life in general. You can be worthy of trust through your actions, but trust must always be given to you.
Trust is about delivering against the odds and working sacrificially for the wellbeing of others. The only thing harder than earning the trust of others is keeping their trust over time.
Perfection is an elusive ideal. But we never stop in our pursuit of excellence. It’s never, ever just “good enough.”
Excellence is about paying attention to the details that others don’t see, and choosing to invest the extra time to ensure our work exceeds our clients’ expectations.
We never forget that we’re dealing with fellow human beings who deserve the same kindness we would expect for ourselves and our families.
Kindness is about intentionally being considerate, generous, and patient with everyone, regardless of their position or how our day is going. Kindness is being aware when others need a smile, a kind word, or a cookie.
Endurance in the face of obstacles is often what separates those who do great things from those who talk about how they almost did something great. Endurance brings tiredness, discomfort, or even pain, and it almost always involves a struggle.
Endurance is about understanding the satisfaction that comes through achieving the goal, staying focused, and having the confidence in our ability to succeed as we strive toward that goal.
Integrity is demonstrated when we have a consistent set of values in all circumstances, and over time — when others can count on us to do what we say we will do.
We act with integrity when we will stand by our values — regardless of whether we’re basking in the spotlight at an event, challenged to make a tough ethical choice, or writing an email alone at the keyboard.
We are honored to work with visionary entrepreneurs and industry leading corporations.
