Water resource economist Christine Boyle was at a crossroads. She had just started a San Francisco–based company with an amazing product that could potentially change the world, but she had two big obstacles in her way. She needed to get her water analytics software in front of water utilities, and she needed funding to make that happen.
When her company, Valor Water Analytics, was asked to compete for the Disrupt Cup at TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield, one of the most prestigious technology competitions in the world, she saw a potential solution to both problems. Needless to say, this was an amazing opportunity for the young company, and Christine was a bit overwhelmed. And she needed more than a Seattle advertising agency. She needed every detail to be perfect.
We managed Valor Water’s entire presence at the event; designed all the collateral assets, including the banners and booth; partnered with a national public relations firm; and consulted on Christine’s pitch. All of this allowed Christine to focus on her presentation.
Though Valor Water did not win the competition, it provided critical exposure for the young company. Christine was invited to present at South by Southwest Eco in Austin, Texas, and the Verge conference in the Bay Area. Currently, Valor Water Analytics is fully funded and growing fast.
