In January, 2000, we opened our doors with little more than a dream, a laptop, a cell phone and a whole lot of passion. We didn’t have much else to do, so we generated publicity for the agency.
That publicity was a catalyst. It helped land our first client, Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund (FCGF) – the world’s 2nd largest public charity. We were able to help FCGF successfully achieve their goals. In the process, we achieved ours.
Within a few months, TJX, Goya Foods, and Kellogg’s called on us and the rest is history.
