Our mission is to help brands become world class, categorical leaders in the digital-first world.

Our story

Let's embark on the journey of how it all started...


Pre T Minus Studios

Before T Minus Studios, our team co-founded ShopGLD which was acquired by Ryan Brant, co-founder of NASDAQ: TTWO which is most notable for bestselling video games Grand Theft Auto & 2k sports franchise. More recently, in 2020 after our divestiture, ShopGLD was acquired by H.I.G. Growth Partners.


T Minus Studios is Born

T Minus Studios begins servicing start-ups, SMBs, & Fortune 1000 enterprises as a fractional CMO/marketing consultant. At this point, only able to work with 3-5 companies at any given time but have aspirations of servicing thousands of businesses globally.


Y Combinator SUS

Our team joined Y Combinator SUS (YC). YC is notable for funding Airbnb, Stripe, Dropbox, Instacart, Reddit, and Coinbase. Startup School is designed to help founders through the earliest, most difficult challenges of starting a company. We graduated from their startup school in 2018 & were readmitted to the 2019 cohort.


COVID Strikes

When the times get tough, the tough get going. In 2020, we found our sweet spot, helping companies who not only wanted to succeed online, but wanted to be come world class brands. During this era, we helped B2B Tech & DTC companies go from no online presence to categorical leaders, some raising capital at their desired valuation, and achieving $40mm+ ARR in the process from our CAaaS & CMOaaS.


Breath & Depth

During 2021-2023 we expand our services beyond growth marketing, customer acquisition & demand generation.

We also take on a couple CMOaaS roles, helping startups achieve $1.8mm run rate in < 1 year, and helping others navigate acquisitions.


Introducing MIaaS

In 2024, we introduce Marketing as a Subscription(MaaS) due to popular demand. We noticed a need in the market for companies who simply don't have the marketing bandwidth in house to achieve excellence in the digital-first world.

Our team grows to 9 marketing experts! 

We're founders too. We created the agency we wish WE had to work with...
