Located in Washington, DC., Clutch is the leading B2B review and rating platform that encompasses the marketing, IT, and business services industries. In recognition of Pride, Clutch proudly announced their 2021 list of Prominent LGBTQ+ owned businesses, including BSTRO in the top 15.
The Clutch certification program is widely respected for its goal of helping socially disadvantaged firms achieve equity.
“At Clutch, empathy and intentionality stay at the top of mind, especially when thinking about supporting the LGBTQ+ community. As Pride Month approaches, it becomes even more important to promote visibility and inclusion for LGBTQ+ individuals and businesses,” said Austin Ellis, Clutch Customer Operations Representative.
“It is our absolute pleasure to announce that BSTRO has been recognized as a certified outstanding LGBTQ+ owned business on Clutch,” added Ellis.
Clutch’s certification efforts aim to recognize and promote LGBTQ+ owned businesses of all sizes and services.
Since 2004, BSTRO has been a formidable digital marketing agency, helping brands transform their sales and marketing with relevant storytelling and a strong command of technology.
“We’ve been thriving for 17 years without a sales team, so being recognized within the industry is especially gratifying. Word-of-mouth and referrals are the primary sources of our new business. Hearing that our diversity is an area that makes us stand out amongst our peers is an added reason to celebrate,” Jill Tracy, Founder & Chief Creative Officer of BSTRO.
In addition to Clutch’s certification, BSTRO was also highlighted by The Manifest for its stellar services and diversity. The Manifest is a business resource platform that’s famous for its how-to guides, agency shortlists, and B2B wisdom.
According to The Manifest, BSTRO ranks fourth among the top 20 LGBTQ+ owned branding agencies for 2021.
