As Adbongo was being formed in 2006, the world wide financial system was about to collapse. Up until then, cause marketing and green business practices were seen as little more than a gimmick by the rest of the business world. After the dust from the crash of 2008 had begun to clear, it soon came [...]
As local, state and national government agencies examine ways to create jobs and turn around the struggling economy, business incubation programs are featuring prominently in the debate – as well they should. For 50 years, incubators like Adbongo have been helping entrepreneurs turn their ideas into viable businesses, promoting innovation and creating jobs by providing emerging companies with business support services and resources tailored to young firms to increase their chances of success.
As any entrepreneur can attest, starting a new business isn’t an easy task. Most business owners know every detail of their product or service, but many lack all of the skills they need to turn their ideas into successful firms. Business incubation programs are uniquely positioned to help entrepreneurs access resources through the incubator. Whereas entrepreneurs usually need to hire separate entities to write their business plans, provide legal advice, create marketing and advertising materials and develop their social media presence, the Adbongo incubator can perform all of these functions at a fraction of the cost clients would have to pay to secure these services from multiple providers.
Around the world, entrepreneurs are playing an increasingly important role in transforming economies. Rather than relying solely on efforts to attract existing businesses from other locations, many communities like Dallas are recognizing the need to help local residents build new businesses from the ground up through business incubators.
By focusing on developing a new generation of entrepreneurs – most of whom have ties to the local area – communities are helping to build companies that will create jobs and spark economic growth in the region for years to come. And because these programs provide targeted business assistance to young firms at their earliest stages of development – when they’re most vulnerable – business incubators help support new ventures that have a greater-than-average chance of success.

Adbongo continues to trumpet the cause-washing warning. We ask for accountability and authenticity in cause marketing. While some companies are truly doing good things for people and the planet (read: ADBONGO), others contribute .0000008 percent of profit to a selected cause and reap the publicity rewards for doing so. Painting halos to cover the devil horns of corporate greed allows old paradigm companies to masquerade as socially and environmentally progressive. Adbongo is one marketing company that does not approve of such a deceptive tactic. We only seek to represent those companies that want more than good publicity for themselves; we promote companies that are committed to supporting real change on behalf of the planet and its people.
Thank you to Enlumnia, Mega 26, and Graphic Content for partnering with Adbongo. We’re honored and grateful.
“For cause related companies with an environmental and socially responsible vision, Adbongo is the business incubator that is invested in their success.”
