1880 is a strategic marketing consultancy led by Kristin Mills, positioning and marketing expert, and backed by a talented network of growth advisors, creatives, designers, and developers. Together, we help companies strengthen positioning, tell their story, and grow.

We believe focus is important for any business, including us. We work solely with growth-stage companies in the government contracting market in technology and professional services. Understanding the challenges these businesses face when approaching graduation or competing in the full and open market, we founded 1880 to help.

1880 is named for the year Mathilde C. Weil started the first woman-owned ad agency in the United States. She was an immigrant, a widower, and smart. Her courage inspires us. 


Strategic Positioning and Marketing.

We believe most answers are found in alignment, so we start there. 

Our process begins with discovery where we bring together all the minds for visioning, collaboration, and research. Working cross-functionally with executive teams, solutions, growth, and marketing, we create alignment across business objectives, map the strategy, and start implementation.

When working with teams, we serve as a strategic advisor or as an interim Chief Marketing Officer.
