Percentage of clients who are new ventures


Percentage of clients who require web design


Many of our startup clients are very early-stage. Oftentimes they don’t have a dedicated marketing team (or even a marketing person) on staff. We work with many startups who are lite on resources, but heavy on vision. The need to to have a professional brand image is profoundly important. Here are some of our typical engagement scenarios.

Seeking investors and talent
Self, Angel or Seed-funded startup looking to develop a web presence to attract new talent and also demonstrate value to the VC community.

Preparing for Series-A
Early-stage startup preparing to engage with investors to land their Series-A funding. Typically have a basic website with a product in beta with a limited user-base. They are now in need of a more sophisticated online presence.

Growing for Series-B and beyond
This stage is when companies are starting to build their operation and expand their reach into more markets. They are begining to scale and often need to pivot their marketing and branding efforts with a new website.

Self-funded venture
We often work with founders or partners who are self-funded and looking to invest in their own venture funded out-of-pocket. In many cases, this means we are creating the initial branding and website for the new company.
