Consumers are becoming more informed and aware of how they are caring for themselves. Additionally, cultural trends and behaviors have significantly impacted the way that even the most traditional companies do business.
FUTURE OF WORK
No workplace or industry is safe from the buzzword of "disruption." We aim to invest in practical solutions that allow companies to increase their bottom line.

MARKETING & BRANDING
DIGITAL MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA
Brands are a critical component to any business regardless of what stage the company lifecycle. Every company has a story to tell, and if the company doesn’t control the narrative, that leaves the company vulnerable to external forces. Our team has deep expertise in brand development and brand management.
At TECHLETE, our unique background allows us to connect with decision makers efficiently. This unique background provides an opportunity to partner our portfolio companies with potential new customers and revenue streams. We greatly value our diverse network of corporate relationships and proactively work to understand their business challenges so that we may continue to facilitate meaningful and mutually beneficial introductions.
We have a diverse network of influencers in sports and entertainment. Having influencers associated with a great product can often accelerate growth and create stickiness around a brand. Beyond marketing, through various social channels, influencers have the ability to provide valuable insight for products and strategy.
Producing and distributing content through a complex digital environment requires a deep understanding of how each platform works. Additionally, establishing an authentic voice and point of view is key to winning over potential customers. TECHLETE understands the tremendous value of having a social media strategy and works with each client towards a custom solution.
