THE COMPANY A digital marketing agency.
BRIGHT SPOTS Disruption for the win! Disruptive Advertising — a former UV50 Startup to Watch — has become a marketing mastermind with more than $20 million in sales last year and purpose-driven strategies specifically tailored to each client.
1. “Keep growing and evolving. We’re committed to doing so in a sustainable and authentic way.”
2. “We are committed to diversity and inclusion, and we will continue to invest heavily into the growth of our employees and making a difference in our communities.”
ADVICE “Define your purpose, and enjoy the journey. Celebrate the wins and learn from the failures. If growth is your only goal, you likely won’t enjoy the journey, or even the destination.”
SHINING MOMENT “We didn’t have to lay off or furlough one employee during Covid, or in the history of our company, and we actually increased a majority of our employees’ salaries in April of 2020. Much of this is attributed to our mindset on growth: If you invest in your employees, this will translate to the success of the business as a whole.”
