About KAG Ventures LLC
Our Collective Experience
KAG Ventures LLC grew out of years of marketing consulting, corporate marketing, and high-value enterprise selling. Most members of our team have extensive experience in all these aspects of marketing and selling. We also all have deep experience in particular aspects of marketing, as you can read below.
Why is that important?
We approach marketing from having led teams, organizations, and projects as well as on the ground, in the trenches selling directly to executives, customer teams, and individuals.
We understand how marketing creates and prepares the path for sales. And we understand how sales helps sharpen a product line and messaging. And all of us have first hand experience creating business relationships that produce win-win-win results.
Our Passion for Marketing
Marketing connects people with opportunities to move them forward in the world. Marketing makes solving every day problems possible—by shaping ideas into viable products, by optimizing innovation into something useable by consumers, by taking a brand new way of doing something and helping the world understand how that might help them.
Marketing is how people get every day problems solved.
And marketing helps inventors and innovators make an impact on the world.
Sounds a little crazy? Without marketing, you wouldn’t know about what might be fun to do tonight or how to get your broken phone fixed or which car is most cost-effective for you. And without marketing, an innovator wouldn’t know how to get their new way of doing something out into the world as a consumable product or service.
Marketing is the bridge between innovation and an individual’s world.
We believe that excellent marketing helps make your dreams come true and your passions come to life.

I have enjoyed being able to provide the professional help necessary to coordinate, manage, assist and thereby reduce overhead costs of administrative functions in various office settings. More recently, I have served as an administrator for 360 feedback assessments and I have been working in social media marketing creative and curative content management. In that capacity I have learned to promote website and internet marketing visibility for clients by crafting lead in summaries for social media website posts with content that stimulates interest in their specific area of products and services and then providing monthly analytic summaries.
Community and cultural activities have also been a primary focus. In that capacity, I have served on many boards to help define the local land use regulations for non-motorized trails, have served as a volunteer as a lifetime member of National Charity League, past member of Soroptimists, Meals on Wheels and a local high school staff volunteer.
