Ellen Rudy

Founder

After 25+ years branding B2B and B2C clients in the for-profit world, from Fortune 500 companies to Silicon Valley startups, I am now focused on serving non-profits and social justice clients–my first love. I believe that nonprofits truly benefit from the power of Brand.

My non-profit clients range from big players like The Silicon Valley Community Foundation to small organizations – from health care focus to educational and cultural focus.

In 2015 I became certified in the IDEO practice of Human-Centered Design to better serve my clients.

In addition to my client work, I was co-host of The Hayden Group’s Synergos Series for seven years, featuring Silicon Valley non-profit leaders from SV2, Tuolumne River Trust, The Climate Project, Salvation Army, Achieve Kids, and the Global Fund for Women to name a few. I have been a volunteer Mentor / Advisor for Astia and Adsila, a campaign volunteer for Obama ’08 and ‘12, Jerry Brown ’10, Santa Clara MTA ’14. and am currently a volunteer Co-organizer for the Silicon Valley Health Meetup.

I would love to help your cause or organization invigorate your Brand. Let’s talk.
