A brief history

As any brand strategist knows, there is a glaring gap between the strategist’s promise and the client’s expectation. We created the Brief Company to narrow this gap; to provide ambitious founders with the confidence of knowing they have come to the right place, and strategists with the environment to do what they do best.

You could also say that the Brief Company was born because there was a great need in the market. There was a need to demystify brand position strategy, that ever elusive yet vital ingredient that turns a real estate company into a place to do what you love, a computer company into a tribe of non-conforming creatives, or a sneaker company into a rally cry for just doing it. There was a need to challenge the old agency model where you paid too much for too little too late with a smart strategic sprint model that provides founders with an affordable strategic foundation to provide a north star for their startup.

We set out to not only find the best strategists out there but collectively figure out ways to optimize the process, unleash their talent, and match them with the most exciting startups out there globally.

The Brief Company provides its strategists with exactly what they’ve always wanted.

By coming together, the Brief Company creates an environment where strategists are continually bringing their insights of working with founders to not only enrich the community, but more importantly, to continually improve the process and maximize the impact of the strategic sprint.
