Why We're Here
"We enable purpose-driven organizations to more effectively and efficiently engage the people they serve -- employees, customers, and ecosystem partners -- through the art and science of modern storytelling.
Challenge: business leaders today -- especially those who are seeking to align their strategy with social impact -- are increasingly competing for mindshare. And they often lack the resources to communicate effectively across the many new channels where stakeholders can be reached.
Solution: a team of pioneers in storytelling -- the business world's greatest social tool -- with decades of experience reimagining the marketing-and-communications infrastructure of some of the world’s most trusted brands and media companies. We enable purpose-driven organizations (those that are committed to aligning their businesses objectives with positive social impact) to more effectively and efficiently engage the people they serve -- employees, customers, and ecosystem partners -- through the art and science of modern storytelling.
Whom we serve: Past and current partners include The White House Hispanic Initiative (Obama Administration), the United Nations, the U.S. Dept. of Education, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, Parallel 18 (an economic initiative in Puerto Rico), Google, Microsoft, Unilever, NBC, Huffington Post, the AARP, the American Heart Association, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Morehouse College, Stanford University, Singularity University, and dozens of technology start-ups, from market entry to market exit.
