Founder

Graeme Thickins founded GT&A Strategic Marketing explicitly to serve technology startups, well before it was in vogue for marketing firms to do so. He’s had some amazing experiences building value and achieving remarkable results for his clients along the way. He’s devoted his entire career to technology startups, after cutting his teeth at two of Minnesota’s renowned Fortune 500 technology pioneers, Control Data and Medtronic – both highly entrepreneurial, founder-led firms that spawned literally thousands of startups.

Graeme has consulted with and advised some 200 technology startups and corporate ventures over 30+ years that have collectively achieved billions of dollars of shareholder wealth. His clients are founders and C-level execs, and many are serial entrepreneurs that have worked with him over multiple startups.

Graeme has also served as an interim marketing or content executive for some of his clients. He has extensive credits as a published writer and analyst. His personal blog, GraemeThickinsOnTech.com was launched in 2005.

His style is highly collaborative, and he earns most of his business via referral, which brings him a great deal of pride.
