Start Here has helped us raise more than $3.5 million. I simply cannot recommend highly enough the ease with which Start Here grasps esoteric concepts and makes them not only easily understood, but compelling and worthy of financial support. Their work is so strong that Start Here now manages our development and marketing/communications operations.

We wanted to capture the wisdom, insights and experience of the young adult cancer community in a book that would be a go-to resource for those facing cancer in their 20s and 30s. Start Here dove in and became de facto subject matter experts: they triaged existing material, solicited new contributions, wrote much of the original content, and edited the complete assortment into a cohesive, accurate, engaging, and practical guidebook that is an invaluable resource for young adults facing a devastating illness. I still hear how much the book helps people, and I can honestly say that we couldn’t have pulled it off without Start Here.

Start Here provides not only excellent writing and communication skills, but is also expert at conveying complex messaging through graphics and illustrations. Their adeptness in taking an idea to reality helped a time sensitive and politically-charged annual report come to fruition on-time and within budget; they managed to create a document that pleased all parties.

Start Here is fantastic and totally humbled me in my prior opinion that no one else could write about our work. My list now has a single entry: Start Here Project Development.

Start Here became immersed in what we did — learned to speak and think and — here’s the thing — make judgment calls just like we would — and then went out and flat out worked until our project was done. I’ll never use anyone else but Start Here.
