it was kind of an accident
After two consultants bid for the same contract, but only one was awarded; a strange, maybe counter-intuitive theme emerged – Why compete?
In yesteryear, two rigorous, well-educated business consultants may have sworn rivalry after one took the business from another. However, Millennials simply don’t think the way our business forefathers do.
Instead, founders Jonathan and Kale had a conference call. The two strangers sat down to discuss why one got the contract and not the other. As it turns out – it wasn’t merit. It was simply pricing. Both had impressed the client, and funny enough, had come up with very similar, yet unique creative marketing campaign recommendations.
At that time, the two decided to magnify each other’s efforts instead of defy them. K&J Growth Hackers is born.
