In 2015 we started as a promotional company, whose business plan was the winner in an entrepreneurship contest. Thus having the opportunity to present our idea to the CEO & Chairman of Gallup® Jim Clifton, who proposed to become an advertising agency. We did not know what an advertising agency did nor did we believe that it was possible to make money. We started working for free and achieving business alliances to gain experience in the world of advertising. Today we have become a full service advertising agency with a global reach. Maintaining that entrepreneurial spirit that has brought us to where we are today.
