If We Had One Piece of Advice to Give You

Focus on Innovation, Value, and Impact.
You’ll be competing against a diverse set of companies. Some whose products or campaigns are largely funded and adopted, others with smaller budgets and clients, or those that have just received funding to fully develop their product and every type of company in between. So, what makes your entry innovative, valuable, and impactful?
The most significant way for you to stand out in the crowd and define yourself is to focus on what problem your product or campaign solved and your unique strategies to achieve effectiveness and impact.
