2018 was a truly epic year for Emissary.

From a small office in the heart of Chinatown in NYC, we’ve built a company, a community of knowledge, and a network of amazing humans doing meaningful work for world-class companies – all while maintaining focus on delivering quality engagements for our customers.

This year, we’ve grown our client network to include companies with products at the forefront of IT and Marketing, including many of the largest technology companies in the world. These are companies that knew the best way to succeed in 2018 was by giving their sales strategy team the tools to uncover what others can’t – the tools to harness unwritten knowledge. These are enterprise sellers that have learned that building relationships by listening, asking hard questions, and doing their homework pays off.

As a result, our Emissaries have helped provide transformative insights to drive thousands of deals in 2018. To fuel these insights, we’ve doubled the number of advisors on our platform — and vetted them all to make sure they have the relevant knowledge and skills to help make our clients more successful. This growth has attracted the attention of publications like TechCrunch, Cheddar, and the Wall Street Journal.

As our network and client list have grown, we’ve remembered to have a great time and give back to the community. We’ve built life-long relationships while learning from the best and brightest leaders in the world.

So just how big has this year been for Emissary? Check out the numbers:
