We’re a collective of individuals who have held leadership positions on political campaigns, within the Obama Administration and US Congress, and for some of the largest companies and nonprofits in the United States. We’re creators, innovators, activists, andstrategists but more importantly, we know how to get stuff done!

We’re tired of seeing good candidates, campaigns, and causes fail because of a bad team, poor strategy, no visibility, and lack of resources. We’re dope in our own right but we’re channeling our experience, insight, and expertise into empoweringauthentic leaders and innovative organizations who want to make a real difference in their communities.

Society is screaming for a new model of leadership and it’s time to rise up.
