We’re Makk. And we’re exactly who you’re looking for.

The name Makk comes from the old Norse word meaning “make”. We’re here to support the makers. The startup founders and their teams who are passionate about what they do.

About Us

Founded by 3 marketers and business leaders, each sharing the belief that startup marketing can be done better, Makk is building a unique consultancy providing high-potential businesses with the right strategic guidance at the right time.

We work almost exclusively with early stage and vc-backed startups, because our collective experience of scaling and marketing these types of businesses allows us to put our money where our mouth is.

Unlike other agencies and consultancies we take a long term view of our partnerships. Rather than substantial retainers, we keep your costs at an absolute minimum through a shared risk/shared reward model. We focus on value delivered rather than time. 

Poor marketing and cashflow are two of the top reasons why 50% of startups fail in their first 5 years of trading.  Makk helps to solve both of those problems.

Our Values

Don’t waste anybody’s time.

As a consultancy it’s our expertise and our time that we sell, so we believe in treating everybody’s time as equally valuable. That goes for clients, suppliers and our own time. It’s important to respect other peoples’ time by being transparent in every interaction.

Honesty is the best policy.

Makk was born out of frustration from agency politics and a desire to build better relationships with clients.  We believe that transparency and honesty are critical for successful, long term relationships with both clients and suppliers.

Horses for courses.

Consultants, tools and methodologies are all matched to the needs of our clients on a case by case basis.  One-size-fits-all is ineffective and, frankly, not as exciting.
