Venture Management and Marketing, established in 2001, is a full service marketing and management services practice specializing in start-ups and small- to mid-sized businesses. We work with our clients in several different capacities. We focus on helping our clients develop their branding and messaging efforts, while designing customized strategies to reach their target markets. Whether you're just starting out or have been in business for years, we can work with you to develop a marketing strategy specifically designed for your business. It doesn't matter if you're a "one-man show" or a Fortune 500 company; we can develop an approach customized to your specific needs. We can be as proactive or reactive as you like.
We also help many of our clients improve their business and internal management processes by working with them to improve best-practice efforts while reducing operational inefficiencies. Together, we take a look at your business as a whole to make sure things are running as efficiently as possible. Many businesses that are "new" don't currently have processes in place that they can "grow into" as they mature to keep from establishing bad habits that may cost them revenue and/or profits in the future. And many existing businesses never identified agreed-upon systems and processes to keep things running smoothly as they grew. Now, they are working too hard for too little and it feels like they're in a state of perpetually being "almost there" but they can't seem to get over that final hurdle.
We work with you in a manner that best suits your particular situation.
Let us help you take a new look at how to best reach new customers and improve the productivity of your business.
