with the innovation, imagination, and inspiration to see higher and be better.
Back in 2003, while Derek was an undergraduate at Saint Louis University, he sat outside his academic advisor’s office one afternoon as he contemplated what his future would hold post-graduation. As he waited, he picked up a magazine to pass the time – and came across an article that sparked an idea. Derek’s idea grew into a plan, and that plan became a mission…and goBRANDgo! was founded.
Across town, another young entrepreneur, Brandon Dempsey, started his first company in college after seeing an opportunity in the Human Resources industry. He went on to sell that company, start a new one in online marketing, and ultimately merge forces with Derek.
Since then, we have cultivated our culture and process, developing goBRANDgo! into what it is today, a full-service marketing and digital agency working to empowergize entrepreneurs. We are strategic advisors—the guardians of legacies and the champion of the everyday entrepreneur. We empowergize people and organizations with the innovation, imagination, and inspiration to see higher and be better, every day.
