Backline Partners is a RELATIONSHIP FIRST consulting, strategy, management and investment firm.  We believe the best path to value creation is through better, more meaningful relationships with employees, customers, vendors and partners.  This perspective, developed over years of working in private equity investing, event production and operations, experiential marketing, and strategic advisory, is the foundation of our strategy as we help:

Entrepreneurs, business owners, leadership teams and key stakeholders who are at an inflection point with their business by providing valuable feedback, perspective, tactical expertise and access to a deep network of relationships to help figure out how to best position their company for growth and long-term success

People leaders and culture managers create more meaningful incentive programs, culture building and community fostering ideas, strategies and opportunities

Meeting, event and experience planners identify, plan and access unique corporate and group event concepts and experiences, and book high-quality talent and intimate, VIP experiences

Advertisers and marketers interested in standing out from the crowd understand and find culturally relevant experiential and event marketing, strategic partnership and sponsorship opportunities

Goods and services are no longer enough to foster economic growth, create new jobs, and maintain economic prosperity. To realize revenue growth and increased employment, the staging of experiences must be pursued as a distinct form of economic output. Indeed, in a world saturated with largely undifferentiated goods and services, the greatest opportunity for value creation resides in staging experiences.
