Who we are

Our story Our model Our offerings Our people

Clutch is a business acceleration firm helping agriculture and food businesses find and realize their peak potential.

Our values
Authentic
Self-assured
Inventive
Transparent
Empathetic

We’ve created a hybrid approach to accelerating business with a model that consistently outperforms traditional agencies and consulting firms. Everything we do is grounded in the business objectives our clients are hoping to achieve. We combine a whole-business view with the category-specific application and inside insights that can only come from real-life experience and multiple perspectives.

Generating growth requires a healthy blend of applied economics and applied psychology, and the things we do bring that combination to life. Our mix of strategy, marketing and sales and training expertise give our clients the information and tools they need to confidently drive their businesses forward.

Some of our clients combine our offerings while others have projects focused on one discipline more than others. We’re comfortable either way but promise perspective from each area in all the work we do.

Clutch includes a team of strategic marketing and sales professionals that have worked for and with the leading brands in agriculture. We have years of experience engaging both channel partners and progressive producers, and have a keen understanding of what’s relevant, interesting and useful to them and their operation.

How we work

Every project we complete goes through our A4 process: Assess, Align, Activate and Analyze.

We start with the business objectives and the situation, and build an action plan to deliver what you need. It ensures everyone has clear understanding on what they’re going to get and the results we’re going to deliver from kick-off to conclusion.

And, since our model is focused on the results rather than the time to get there, we always answer three key questions before we start work: What will you get? When will it be done? and How much will it cost?

Assess Align Activate Analyze
