6 THINGS WE KNOW TO BE TRUE

Our mission is to serve the most creative, purpose-driven thinkers in the world. In order to do this, we have identified 6 things that we unapologetically know to be true. These beliefs form the foundation of everything we do at Odessa.


THERE’S STILL HUSTLE IN THE VALLEY

Unicorns are rising and falling faster than you can say “term sheet.” We believe that the glory days of hustling and staying lean aren’t over.

This is why we launched ODESSA LABS, the short-term project-based division of our company that keeps its finger on the pulse of what’s happening around the world, and shapes thought-provoking creative strategy that’s capable of breaking into the mainstream conversation. LABS projects propel clients into the now.

In the words of Steve Jobs,

“Stay hungry, stay foolish.” 


DESIGN-LED, EXPERIENCE-DRIVEN

You’re probably wondering why our firm is called ‘Odessa.’

Odessa is the Greek word for “odyssey.”

We only work with entrepreneurs that have thought obsessively about the customer journey. We finesse your growth strategy with a beautiful PR, digital, millennial and community engagement strategy that goes far beyond media hits. It’s about building a community.

 Internally, our culture is creative, nomadic and inspiring. From creative strategy retreats in the mountains to our headquarters, we are constantly sharing ideas with the world’s most accomplished makers and creators. At Odessa, our odyssey always links back to this: how do we build a company from the inside-out?


MISSION OVER MONEY

We are selective and strict on our vision of representing the top 10% of most creative, purpose-driven thinkers in the world. Part of our mission is also to elevate more women in tech. Additionally, we place mission over money and accept clients by referral only from our friends and global network of venture capital firms, angel groups, government organizations and incubators.


FOR MILLENNIALS, BY MILLENNIALS

We believe in ideas that have the power to galvanize the millennial generation around impactful, inspiring stories - the kind that can propel companies into the mainstream.


RE-WRITING THE RULES OF STARTUP PR

What we know to be true is that the traditional world of PR doesn’t work for startups.

With this in mind, we’ve hand-selected the best of the best talent, a diverse generation of millennials who are experts at knowing what works and what doesn’t work.


BE CURIOUS

We believe in hiring for curiosity. We believe that creative expression, wanderlust and intellectual curiosity should not be left at the door when you come to work. This is why we only select projects that solve real problems and ignite the most creative version of ourselves.
