Part and Sum is a digitally native innovation and strategy firm, with a unique, built-in growth team. The firm aligns data-driven insights with actionable strategies to help its clients with a simple yet substantial goal: to grow their business. Part and Sum doesn’t “swoop in”, leaving clients with lists of recommendations and no direction. Instead, it “bolts on” to the client, working in tandem to get specific about the big picture.

the whole reason to build a team and a business is because you have this collective knowledge, experience, and wisdom that is powerful. If you don’t tap into that, then what’s the point

Their approach to consulting is a little different. Their processes are built on the idea that effective marketing strategy must be flexible and iterative. Strategy needs to live and breathe within the business, from software to the minds of creative teams. That’s why they use a process of testing, learning and evolving, set at a cadence that’s sustainable for their clients, so real-world market information can be incorporated as quickly and as often as possible.

Part and Sum offer services across brand strategy, user experience, marketing strategy, marketing technology and tools, and paid media and measurement.
