Five Point is a strategic services agency dedicated to helping our clients go to market, and understand and strengthen their strategic market position.
We believe in the power of entrepreneurship, creativity, skills, and collaboration across systems and stakeholders. We are "STEM" (science, technology, engineering, and math) advocates, and see it as more than a basic buzz word: it's an integral component for smart regions, connected industry and community systems, and intelligent economic development.
We specialize in work with tech- and knowledge-driven start-ups, mission-driven organizations, and corporations with disruptive ideas and goals. Our services include go-to-market planning and implementation, investor strategy and pitch support, strategic planning, data science and analysis, market and competitive analysis, communications/public relations, and dynamic outreach and engagement platforms. Incorporated in 2014, Five Point is a woman-owned and US-based business.
