People Like Us

If I hadn’t met Sarah Williams, I would still be flailing, scattered, and feeling very alone on this entrepreneurial journey. 816 New York meets me exactly where I am in every moment, offering a kind of support that communicates to me that they are just as invested as I am in watching me succeed.

I’ve been really impressed with the 816 New York team’s ability to pull everything together. I work with a good amount of vendors that can only get you 85% of the way through a project.

816 New York understands communication, design, and technology. That collection of skills and knowledge enables them to deliver turnkey solutions with minimal work and/or feedback from the customer. Working with vendors like 816 New York allows me to continue to do more with less.
