“The initial round of this [ProblemSpace building materials] challenge yielded great response well beyond our expectations. The framework ADL provided to create a wide prospect funnel, then quickly navigate toward final selections, was essential in streamlining the process for Sto’s management. Without ProblemSpace we would have been unsure of the differentiation and fit, and hard-pressed to execute.”
Tyson Kindstrom,
VP of Marketing, Sto Corporation
"What was unusual about ADL is how well they paired innovative thinking with their startup expertise. The American Healthcare system is entrenched and full of perverse incentives. ADL was not only able to imagine strategies that would reignite preventative medicine, establishing an approach that was focused on health and not sickness, but was also able to deliver and pitch a world-class execution plan for building the business."
