Helping innovative companies scale to their full potential

Nar8iv has one purpose; help you scale your young, innovative company to its full potential.

And despite the challenges we're all facing, the opportunities ahead have never been greater or more attainable.

Consider that in a 2019 study, the MIT Executive Summit predicted that by 2030, 

40% of all existing companies will be gone. Arrogance, outdated practices, rigid structures and cultures will leave them incapable of adapting to a business and marketing environment that will have gone through a complete transformation. 

While that presents a tremendous opportunity for innovative new companies trying to fill the void, history shows that 9 out of every 10 will fail and half in their first three years. While their leaders may have great ideas; too many still think, operate and talk about their companies like it's 1995 and no one is listening. 


People have heard it all a million times over.


They want the companies they support to recognize their changed expectations and demands. They want personalization and transparency. Who are you? What do you do? How do you do it? Who, specifically, do you do it for? Be anything you want to be. Just be honest about it.


"If you do it well and it's perfect for me, I'm in. If you don't, I'm out." In other words, stop the BS.


We're not an ad agency. The world has way too many of those already.


We're a partnership of experienced professionals who operate independently and together as needed; united in a belief that if you're an innovator trying to bring a great new idea to the mainstream, you must look forward and start thinking, operating and talking about your company like it's 2030.

Do that today and they will listen.

The future is bright. We can help you get there first.

Why Good, Young Companies Fail

I was recently asked by a former employee to audit the marketing and business development efforts of his 100-person, B2B company in Baltimore. While this story is about one mid-sized company, I've seen very similar issues occur at businesses, young and older, in many other categories. This particular company is eight years old, has a solid reputation in its industry and a nice mix of regional clients. The issue is that, after getting off to a very fast start with some big wins early, they haven't been winning their share of business over the past two years. I was asked to oversee the process and offer my assessment on how it might be improved going forward. I have participated in many new bu

The Week That Was

Did something really just happen? Was the senseless murder of George Floyd the final straw? Will the next murder of a person of color be the final, final straw? Have we finally had enough; seen enough that we're finally willing to put heads together and make some changes? I was talking to a close friend a few days ago who maintains that last week will be the week we remember forever as the catalyst for change. "Things will never be the same," he claimed. "Business as we know it will change. People will demand it." And I couldn't help thinking, "Or will the divide deepen?" I may be the least political guys on the planet. Until this president, I never really noticed the difference in my day-to
