ABOUT

STRATEGY

Our entire focus is on helping our clients address their biggest challenge: Growth.

 

These are certainly exciting (and challenging) times for media, technology, entertainment and information companies. New technologies, platforms, distribution models, marketplaces, editorial models and advertising formats are creating growth opportunities. But capturing those growth opportunities isn’t going to be easy. As the business environment gets more competitive, there is a critical need for new strategies and approaches.

 

That’s where we come in.

 

Leading companies turn to us to find ways to grow their revenues, take advantage of digital opportunities and get ahead of the forces transforming their businesses.

 

We also act as advisors for a number of early- mid-stage startups.  Our clients benefit from our real-world collaboration with entrepreneurs and tech innovators.
