From idea to market. Whether you have an existing product or just an idea, we can help you navigate the market trends through market research and analysis; construction of simple or not so simple business and marketing plans; sourcing materials/ingredients and local co-packers; placing and promoting your product on line, in the media and on the shelves of local businesses. We can also help you navigate the waters through the Non GMO Project certification or Organic certification process. Let us wade through all the new cannabis ordinances and you can just create!

Branding and Identity: Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small, retail or B2B. An effective brand strategy gives you a major edge in increasingly competitive markets. We work with a team of branding experts that will create an entire branding package including logo, business cards, an online presence and perhaps most importantly your "story" that sets your product apart and creates value. Additionally, that brand will be carried over into packaging, signage and collateral.
Events, demos, and fundraisers: We love to party and partying for a cause simply makes us giddy!! Whether it's time for your business to be seen at community events or your cause needs to raise the bar in their fundraising efforts, we can make it happen!
