WHO WE ARE
VSC is a band of strategists, storytellers and data nerds obsessed with helping Davids crush a sea of Goliaths, through unfair amounts of awareness. We customize a mix of public relations, content marketing, and multimedia to accelerate brands into vertical market leaders.
Our energy is that of a startup, albeit one that’s done it for 18 years and helped 600+ startups achieve over $50bn in exits and IPOs.
VSC is at the center of the stories that change how we live, move, work, and play.
Our client experience includes brands such as Tile, Tonal, Pax, Outdoorsy, Molekule, Poshmark, Helium Blockchain, BYJUS, Ample, Gametime, and hundreds more.
Whether it's empowering millions of women to become their own fashion entrepreneurs at Poshmark; working with a Nobel-Prize winner at Mammoth Biosciences developing CRISPR-based tests for COVID-19; launching the first autonomous cargo-plane, Xwing, that delivers PPE supplies to the Navajo Nation, or working with Stacey Abrams to help small business get paid faster with NowCorp, we’re the storytelling engine.
