WE’RE BUILT TO HELP
C-SUITE EXECUTIVES
OPERATE OUTSIDE OF
THEIR CORPORATE
COMFORT ZONE.
YOU HAVE A DISRUPTIVE IDEA. YOU'VE SPOTTED A BIG OPPORTUNITY. OR, MAYBE THERE'S A BUSINESS PROBLEM THAT'S KEEPING YOU AWAKE AT NIGHT. YOU'RE READY TO TAKE ACTION, BUT YOUR INTERNAL TEAM IS TAPPED OUT. OR THERE'S A GAP IN EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE. AND A TRADITIONAL CONSULTING FIRM ISN'T THE RIGHT FIT.
WE’RE LIKE A
“FIXER” FOR
THE C-SUITE.

WE'RE ENTREPRENEURS and seasoned executives who've built businesses, answered to shareholders and consistently delivered results.

WE’RE A NETWORK with access to specialized teams armed with the experience and skills needed to solve your problem, make your idea market-ready and drive your business forward.
And, unlike the typical fee-for-service consulting firm, we prefer to put skin in the game either as a direct investment or through performance-based remuneration. That way, we're fully vested in your success.

LET’S CONNECT

WE ARE 19Y ADVISORS.

Unconventional consulting
for disruptive companies.

The 19Y Family of Companies is a collective of entrepreneurs, marketers and venture practitioners. We formed 19Y Advisors to leverage the incredible talent pool of hyper-experienced senior talent orbiting our central team. We compliment that with 19York, our partner network of progressive marketing specialists. Combined, we have a unique and oftentimes more relevant ‘in the trenches’ perspective on our client companies than traditional management consultancies and venture capital firms. So, in 2019, we formed 19Y Ventures to invest in companies that stand out as uniquely positioned to succeed. The result of our curated approach to venture advisory, capital and growth strategies allow us to get unparalleled results for our clients, shareholders, and collective team members.
