THE MESSAGE BUILDS THE COMPANY

In 2008, The Message Builder was founded by Nathan Kotek after a simple observation—it’s hard for companies to bring their strategy to life into a coherent and creative business story.

It’s a challenge to be heard in today’s noisy world of confusing product categories, buzzword content, social media hype, and mistrusted brands. How to adapt your company business story in this fast-paced world of constant change—disruptive technology, digital innovation, new social economic and ecological values, and an increasing cry for transparency and purpose. Never before has it been so complex to get your message right. Companies have not adapted to this reality.

This mismatch led Nathan Kotek to create Message Building™: a transformational Harvard research-based brand, marketing, and sales storytelling method to overcome this challenge. Because in a world where everyone looks and sounds the same, you need breakthrough messaging—to differentiate and stand out from the pack.

TRACK-RECORD AND TEAM

Our track record is in technology and innovation. Our clients are start-ups, scale-ups, and corporate clients. We work with executive teams responsible for strategy, marketing, sales, branding, product development, and innovation. Further, we’re involved in M&A positioning and dealmaking on both the sell side and buy side. In these projects, we act as a trusted branding, messaging, and positioning partner for entrepreneurs and investors planning to sell their businesses or build by acquisition.

The Message Builder works with a loosely coupled team of specialists, all with their own expertise and track record. Over the years, deep relationships are built with a group of tech serial entrepreneurs, industry analyst with a background in Forrester Research, Gartner and Ovum, and M&A advisors.

On the operational daily side, we work with a network of sales, marketing, and branding agencies that deliver and are pleasant to work with. We would like to introduce you where applicable.

ETHOS

Our ethos is “run deep but go fast.” We’ve been crafting company business stories for years and are confident that we can build yours.
