About our company

StartupFactory LLC is a multidisciplinary strategic marketing and communications firm located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our singular purpose is to satisfy the unique marketing requirements of the early stage, technology business.

Why StartupFactory?

With 20+ years in the field of technology marketing, we will put our expertise to work for you right away. Expensive agencies and consultants with less technology experience jump into the metaphorical empty pool as they invent water on the way down. They may have time for this sort of learning curve, but you don't. We can get you into the market faster, more effectively, at a lower cost of entry.

We're different.

We know what works, what doesn't, whose opinion counts, and how much things should cost. Our extensive technology industry experience is spread across the entire marketing mix: corporate identity, strategy and core messaging, design and implementation of print and web-based advertising campaigns, trade show efforts, direct marketing, public relations programs and the development of sales and support materials that ensure compliance with brand standards. We can help you identify potential funding resources and present your interests in a clear, professional manner.

Everything you need. Nothing you don't.

We have organized the most essential marketing necessities into four core modules that are designed to work together seamlessly. Each module is priced separately and modules can be combined in a manner that fits your particular needs and budget - now and in the future.

Why we publish our prices

At StartupFactory we thought long and hard about publishing prices. We clearly understood the benefit of doing so as a service to our prospects; published prices make it easier to ascertain how much a marketing plan, PR program, or website might reasonably cost.

Every silver lining has a gray cloud.

Some of the smartest engineers and product developers around simply lack the DNA to market effectively. It's just not in them. Still others actually believe that their product or service is so revolutionary, so innovative, and so utterly indispensable, customers will line up at their door without any promotional effort what so ever.
