About Us

We expand the reach of your private fundraise.

We help organizations articulate their investment thesis through thoughtful content,
digitally communicate with prospective and current investors in line with their brand and voice,
and acquire and retain those investors.
We ground our fundraise-marketing plans in thoughtful hypotheses based on
business context and investor insights, and validate those hypotheses through
real-world data to inform iterative execution. 

We act as a force multiplier, leveraging our proprietary product, integration of
best-of-breed third-party tools, and digital marketing expertise. While working closely with
founders and investor-relations teams, we use our experience in creative, content, digital marketing,
technology, and data analytics to help them reach their fundraise goals. We have driven concrete
results for our clients who are happy to be our references. We believe in an open exchange
of ideas, combining our marketing expertise with your industry knowledge to drive a
successful fundraise. ‘About us’ is really about you AND us – working as one team.
