"Established a framework for efficient, effective meetings..."
Setup was very helpful in setting up a speed-dating session for agency introductions and establishing a framework for efficient and effective meetings. The process was quick and useful in identifying partners who could provide beneficial services to our brand - both immediately and as our marketing initiatives evolve.

Paid for by agencies so you don’t have to

Our agency partners pay us to identify relevant, compatible opportunities - not to close deals.

This commission-free business model ensures that we prioritize you and your brand.

Connect to marketing agencies

Quick connections to capable, qualified agencies

The agency selection process is difficult, time consuming, and there’s no way to ensure you’re getting the full picture of your partners.

Our agency assessment process ensures that we have clarity around each of our agency partners’ experience, capabilities, strengths, and weaknesses.

"Setup has been my secret weapon..."
Setup has been my secret weapon, helping build the strategy, business case, and process to spend our marketing budget in areas where I feel we should focus on, and also coaching me to find the right balance for our marketing agency ecosystem. The Setup team really deserves a lot of credit in elevating our brand and digital strategy to the next level.

Leverage our agency matchmaking service when…


You Have Capacity Limitations

Your internal team is stretched too thin and needs assistance carrying out your brand’s marketing initiatives.

You’ve Outgrown Your Agency

Your current agency partner does not have the skill set or experience needed to get your brand to the next level.

Your Brand Needs Change

Maybe you’re new to your role or maybe your agency relationship has lost its “spark” - either way, it’s time for a change.



Over the last five years, we’ve made over 500 introductions between brands and marketing agencies.

Tim Hernquist | Marketing Director, Carrier Corporation

"Setup saved us time and resources..."
Sometimes, marketing organizations within companies are missing capacity or a specific capability. Setup saved us time and resources by connecting us with a well-vetted marketing agency that could function as an extension of our team.
