Programs

We develop our programs around our corporate partners’ strategic objectives, giving them the opportunity to engage with early- and growth-stage startups in efficient and effective ways.

Each R/GA Ventures cohort is given access to the full range of R/GA’s award-winning creative, technology and consulting services—business transformation, strategic marketing, branding, design—as well as access to our network of global brand leaders, mentors and investors.

Born out of our New York City headquarters in 2013, R/GA Ventures has since launched successful programs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Berlin with additional cities to come.
