What We Do

In order to do big things, you need a top-notch strategy and organization to make them possible.

Whether you are a candidate in search of an experienced campaign hand, an organization in need of help with a specific project, or a social entrepreneur with an idea you want to turn into a reality, 50+1 Strategies can provide you with professional assistance in developing a comprehensive strategy and executing it to perfection.

We specialize in strategic management and political consulting for candidates, causes, and organizations. We work with our clients to develop a data-driven, metrics-based plan that meets your needs – then ensure that it is professionally managed on the ground.

In addition, we offer specific a la carte services for clients both inside and outside of the political sphere – including fundraising, project and event management, and graphic and web design.

We take a limited number of clients in order to give each the personal attention and thought it deserves. If you are interested in having 50+1 be a part of your team, contact us here.
