We believe in the work we do and the clients we support, which is why we also operate like an investment firm for select companies. We support a handful of portfolio companies by delivering go-to-market strategies and technology services to enable their launch and evolution. Unlike traditional angel investors and VCs who fund great ideas with dollars, we support great people by rolling up our sleeves and working alongside them.
