Marketing Strategy and Branding
A Serial Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author, Endurance Runner and more, Jason Arcemont is undoubtedly a dynamic individual.
Setting goals and crushing them seems to not only be a common quest for him but what he thrives for. He truly evokes what it is to live an “experiential life”; a principle he speaks about so often.
As the founder of several Inc. 500 companies, Jason has developed the recipe for building powerful organizations.
Both in terms of revenue growth and corporate culture alike. With a combined staff of nearly 100 employees, Jason has shown that his passion for leadership is not only present but extremely effective as well.
Jason’s athletic and philanthropic endeavors have proven to be of similar merit. In October 2014, he ran a record-breaking 859 miles across Texas, all in effort to raise awareness and money to combat human trafficking and child sex slavery.
Over 30 marathons in 30 days, Jason did the unthinkable and proved mind over matter, just as he does in his professional career as well.

His ability to break down complex data analytics and translate the findings into actionable campaign strategies helps clients maximize their digital marketing dollars.
Digital Marketing Economics
Tristan Tarpley is the founder of Market(r), TurboTax for marketing.
When growth-stage businesses look for marketing (product development, advertising, positioning, branding, etc), they typically do 1 of 3 things:
1) Build it in house from day one.
They pool so many resources insourcing that they then don’t have the gas to put into the car, so to speak.
2) They hire their friend that “does marketing.”
3) They hire an agency.
Agencies are kind of like Tylenol. Tylenol is great for its particular use case, but not for all use cases. And you don’t want to take too much Tylenol.
Market(r) uses data science to give the business a list of yes/no recommendations. In the matter of seconds, the business is diagnosed, a prescription is given, and we are monitoring results.
Besides Market(r), Tristan is a fractional CMO for a group of mid-sized companies, an advisor for StudyTact (a peer to peer marketplace for college tutors--Uber for tutors), and a musician that doesn’t play enough music.
